I loaded Mandrake 10, went fine with few problems, BUT,
My OpenOffice is installed in Spanish (or Catalan) by default
Very funny, Mandrake.

Sounds like you've got the Spanish OO install lol - just remove it (rpm -e openoffice (if you installed from rpm) and then download the English version

Hi All

I just answer all above posts in one answer.

I did not install the Catalan version by rpm.
It was installed automaticcaly when I installed the English versiom of Mandrake.
Please don't say that is not possible. cose I can read, and I did the standard instqall ( not individual packages )
I don't drink. I don't smoke dagga. I don't use drugs.

I also do not want to uninstall it right now, I just want to know where iI can change it to the english language, if this is possible.
If not possible. I will have to uninstall and reinstall.

Thanks to all who answered, but hope to get more responses.

If any of you has it in english, maybe he can look where can you change the language, ofcourse, if possible.

Thanks again

To change the language you have to uninstall and reinstall the english version. The language is written into the version.

In my original post I mentioner --few problems----
When I installed v10 , the installer did sit for a full 5 minutes trying to read the package selection, where it normally takes 30 secons or so.
Maybe thats part of the problem.
see you around. thanks again

I think that it's probably your best next step (as much as I hate the fact that you can't do it and feel like such a Windoze Sysadmin saying "reinstall and all will be well again" lol)...

Hope it helps

Where is the kill button usually. I used Mandrake 9.1 before and I don't recall a kill button.

it's called xkill actually
start application-----go up to :
Applications/Monitoring/Xkill

I use it sometimes when an application crashes or hangs or simply seem to take to much time to close. Actually.
