Re: [kubuntu-kde3.5-users] Problems with locale on KDE3

Hi Luis, I had the same problem.
Here is how I solved:

In file /etc/default/locale
I added:
LC_ALL=it_IT.UTF-8 (of course you should insert your language equivalent)

In file .bashrc (hidden file in your home) I added:
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=it_IT.UTF-8

Also the following command helped:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall language-pack-en
sudo apt-get install language-pack-it (install your language pack)

Hope this helps.
