I got a computer with Limpus Linux installed from Acer .  When I booted it the first time my mouse was not working properly and I inadvertently got an oriental language installed.  Any Ideas what I do to change it to English USA.  I'm having trouble reading much of the language.  How about that for a predicament.

Or you can check language symbols (assuming the english libraries etc are installed)..
the selection is done using LC_* environment variables:
an export: LC_CTYPE="C"
should turn your system in english...
for commands start from that shell. (If so then you need to configure this in the system environment variables.

Mostly found in a file named /etc/profile or a script sourced from that script.
(. ) command.
