How to set locale in KDE3.2?


Hi all,

I am using Debian Sid and KDE 3.2. The default locale (LANG, and LC_...) is "POSIX". However, I need to sent the locale to en_US.UTF-8. I remember in older versions of KDE, the control panel let you choose country, language, and charset individually, so this is easy. But in 3.2, one can only choose country and language.

Thanks a lot.

you can do it by placing a file called
.i18n (note the . it's a hidden file)
in your home directory. Edit it to contain
LANG=whatever
LC_whatever=en_US.utf-8 (or whatever locale you want)

log in again and you should be set.
