    Unhappy Ubuntu terminal mixes two languages

    This is my first post so sorry if this thread is not where it should be. And I am also a total Ubuntu beginner.

    My problem is. I bought my computer in Spain and installed ubuntu in it in Spanish, but I decided to switch into English. The thing that bothers me is that when, at the termnal, I enter some commands like "sudo apt-get install whatever" whatever response I get from the terminal is in Spanish. Many many other commands are also dealt with in English. But some are not.

    Is there anyway to erase Spanish language from the system?

    Thanks in advance

    There's a few ways you could do it but I would go with the gnome option.

    2. Uninstall the 'language-pack-es-base' via Ubuntu Software Center
    3. Install 'localepurge' via USC or apt.
