Thanks for this pointer, but I'm still struggling
running env shows that LANG is still set to Japanese (so is KDE ignoring LANG?)
However when I changed it in
it is still coming up as japanese!
How the hell do you change LANG in debian? Must change for all users - this is a workstation in a multi-user environment, and I need to clone it when fixed.
I tried dpkg-reconfigure locales
if I choose en_US.UTF8 only, then everything is in English, but Japanese SCIM doesn't work.
If I choose en_US.UTF8 AND ja_JP.UTF8 then I am back to my original problem.
