    If you don't already have a backup of /home, get one now (ctrl-alt-F1 if X is messed up).

    Once you've done that, you can at least relax a bit. The worst that could happen then is re-install the OS and restore your backup. Then apt to install all your applications.

    Snafus happen. Be ready. (They happen in Windows, too... don't be fooled.)

    if you dont need chinese, then remove it; but set french on top of the installed languages, then click on "apply to whole system", and repeat on the "regional" tab

    i suppose that your system is a french one, so explain how you got chinese without some crazy custom tweaks. If you really want help, take the time to follow the already given ones.

    check inside synaptic (sudo apt-get install synaptic && sudo synaptic) that language-pack-fr is installed and purge the chinese one(s)

    i only meant i didnt know where button or tab to those were since label was chinese. and i think that all language packs are installed but literally all ive done is add software from partners and installed all updates wouldnt know where to begin messing with it + just want it functioning at an acceptable level to get my work done safely
