That depends on which operating system you are using and occasionally on which desktop environment you are using. (KDE has a language locale configuring tool. Gnome, XFCE, and I believe LXDE, do not.) The procedure varies with the distribution (operating system).

In other words, a little information about your system would be helpful.
If you are using Debian, in a terminal type
Code:
dpkg-reconfigure locales

Right..you've said that THREE TIMES now. What you haven't done is answer Randicus Draco Albus question about which desktop environment you're using. You also haven't said if you bothered trying the command he provided, or what the results of that command were. Unless YOU provide details and answer questions, we can't help you, no matter how many times you ask the same thing.

And did you try to look this up on Google or the Ubuntu forums?

Let's sort this out step by step.

1. Make sure you have a Gujarati font installed. Run the character map from the accessories menu, select "view by script", and see if it shows anything when you select Gujarati. If you haven't got one, use your package installer to find a font: Ubuntu is bound to have one.

2. Run the software installer and look for the language packs, and then install the Gujarati one.

3. Somewhere in the menu (system settings, system preferences) you'll have a tool to reconfigure the keyboard. There you can install a Gujarati keyboard driver and say which one you want as the default. You can also (click on Options) select a key to change the layout. Scroll-lock is a good choice, as you can also set the scroll-lock light to indicate when using the other keyboard.

4. Set your locale. This tells your computer the usual language, your local currency, weights and measures, even the size of paper used to print on. Open a terminal and type locale. I get a block of information starting with LANG=en_GB.utf8. Yours probably starts with LANG=en_IN.utf8 and what you want is LANG=gj_IN.utf8. I think you change it using System settings and then Language support.

5. Set your language in LibreOffice. Click on Tools - Options - Language settings - Languages. Then tick the box "Enable complex text layout" and pick Gujarati in the drop-down list marked CTL.

If there are any problems, come back and tell us.

Hi


#you can also change your locale in ubuntu by editing the folloing configuration file.First make sure you had installed the gujarat font



Go to the ubuntu system configuration diretory

$ cd /etc/sysconfig


Quote:
Make backup copy of your language setting file before doing any changes


$ cp i18n i18n.backup


Edit language setting file to allow Gujarat as default.

$ vim i18n

Edit the file : $ LANG="gj_IN.utf8".

Then make a reboot to make tha change to take active

@ Arun
If you can change locale from a tool in the menu, why should the OP want to edit a file? And is it kind to tell a beginner to use vi, of all things?

Moreover all those commands should start with sudo in Ubuntu (default).
