Please be more specific. Which distro you are using? Which is the Desktop Environment / Window Manager (KDE, GNOME or any other)?

While we are on the subject of language, I have an Acer Aspire One, running Linpus Linux Lite (based on Fedora) It is a bilingual Netbook, that is O/S runs in English or French. I tried to install the French version of the O/S at initial startup but it took the English version instead. Does anyone knows how to switch to the French version of Linux Lite? I am new at Linux and I dont know much about programming, etc.

Thank you

Found the solution to my problem

I found the solution to my problem for switching from a Linpus Linux Lite English version to a Linpus Linux Lite French version on the Acer Aspire One.

This is how I found the answer to my earliest problem, how to get a Linpus O/S in French. I had to create a recovery USB stick, format the HDD and reinstall fresh as the original from the USB stick. And this is when at the first boot from the new install that Linpus asked me again in which language I wanted to operate the O/S. Nobody at Acer support, Future Shop support (the reseller of AAO) could tell me that solution that I have been waiting for weeks. I hope the solution will spread to whoever needs it, whatever language you want to operate Linpus Linux of AAO.
