Font issue

In Slackware 11 I have seen that I can only type in Hindi in terminal or in any application in KDE. I am from India. I know that this is a language setting problem. But have searched in Regions and Languages in control Panel I find that it is US English. Then where is the Hindi coming from.
Any clues please?

This is just a guess but I'd say that it's coming from the enviroment. I would check to see what the LANG varible is set to in your /etc/profile file. I would also re-run the Desktop Settings Wizard to make sure it was set to the desired language. If that doesn't work you could try and delete your $HOME/.kde directory then restart KDE. This forces it to its defaults. Of course it also destroys any customizations you've made as well, so it's a last effort sort of thing. I would also check the keyboard settings because some keyboard layouts will only produce the characters they're for.

Thanks for the reply.
But it was a silly mistake on my part. because during setting up Xorg I had chosen the wrong key country, Instead of EnglishI had chosen India.
