Good Evening,

i recently installed manjaro 15.12 on my laptop and installed some suggested language packages
with the manjaro settings manager. after the reboot parts of my desktop are in dutch.
I removed all langugae packages except the en_GB but that did not solve the problem.

So really love this country but how do i get  "Bescheden √∂ver Reedschappen" back to the normal output?

Thanks

share the contents of your /etc/locale.conf and /etc/environment
KDE may have its own language/regional settings module, check there too.

At /etc/locale.gen
Uncomment what you want and comment out what you do not want.
Then at terminal,
Code: [Select]
# locale-genThen check with
Code: [Select]
$ localectl list-localesTo set system language, say "en_GB.utf8"
Code: [Select]
# localectl set-locale LANG="en_GB.utf8"
[edit] - Then only at kde settings (locale), do you modify whatever you want to set.

hello again, i tried the Manjaro setting manager for switching and
reinstalling several languages - no success.
Using the command line like gohlip mentioned did also not work.

The content of /etc/locale.conf ist:
Code: [Select]
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_TIME=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_MONETARY=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_PAPER=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_NAME=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=de_DE.UTF-8

The content of /etc/environment ist:

Code: [Select]
#
# This file is parsed by pam_env module
#
# Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on separate lines
#
BROWSER=/usr/bin/xdg-open

Everything looks as it should be - to me.
But the Dutch is still there... spread over the entire system.
