Orage Tooltip
Orage Time and Calendar are showing information in another language and I would like it to be shown in English. How do I go about changing it to English?

When I put the mouse on Orage clock, it show this:

Sabti 20 Qunxa Garablu 2013/03

Is it showing the Day Date, Year & Month?

I would like for it to show

Day, Month Date & Year.
Sun January 20, 2013

I'm running Salix OS 14 with Xfce4.

Have you checked your locale, LANG or something related?

I do have en, I assume it is for Enlish, but not en_US. I do see en_UK or en_AU:


# ls -l /usr/share/locale/en
total 12
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 qun 19 11:11 LC_MESSAGES/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5830 cig 27 2011 man
Seems like something is still missing.

What happens if you issue "locale" command?

Also, is locale package installed? (?!??)

As the saying goes, KISS. I finally thought of going into System Language settings from the Menu. It was set on the very first choice, which looks like an African language. I was able to choose English for US.

I'm so used to doing things by CLI that I don't think about the GUI tools much.

Locale was showing everything but the US locale for some reason.

Thanks to all.
