View Full Version : [gnome] Can't change locale in Gnome Shell

August 12th, 2012, 12:10 PM
Hi! I've been using the latest Gnome Shell on my Ubuntu 12.04 for some time now and everything has worked perfectly. However, the other day I used localepurge to remove languages I don't use (all except from English and Spanish) and I don't know if I purged the "es" locale by accident :-?

Thing is that after reinstalling English and Spanish from the gnome language selector, the system and all the programs are in Spanish, but I can't get the shell to change its actual language, so right now I have some sort of "dual-language" system :roll:

I'd really appreciate some help on this, because I have tried everything I could think of with no result so far.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the double post.

So I tried running the reinstall_debs.sh script located in /usr/share/doc/localepurge. Apt prints:

And, of course, does not (re)install anything.
