View Full Version : [gnome] change language gnome terminal 10.04

April 27th, 2010, 06:24 PM

i just installed ubuntu 10.04 on our laptop. for convenience I also installed the dutch (gnome) translation and selected Dutch as the default language so all menu's and localisation is suitable for the Netherlands and the misses understands stuff.

However i noticed that the gnome terminal is also translated (and rather badly i might add) so all output from bash is now in Dutch too. This is really inconvenient since I have been using bash in english on fedora and ubuntu for 10 years now.

So is there a way to reconfigure gnome term (bash) to default back to english and leave the GUI in Dutch?
