    Generation complete.

    and you should be good to go.
    Well that was easy. Thank you, that seems to have fixed my problem.

    I usually change it via Openoffice-Options-LanguageSettings menu, very straightforward and it seem to set the locale systemwide.
    That might be something nice to put in the preferences menu.

    This shows English (United States) followed by an English line. I have Clicked the "Apply System-Wide" button, but it does not seem to change anything.

    The language support software should give you a button that says "Install/Remove Languages", if the English (United States) is already installed just re-install either in here (Mine gave me the option to install English package again even though it was already installed on my PC) or in a terminal window with the get-apt command as later directed in this forum Discussion.

    However, as to the clicking that "Apply System-wide" button and it not responding, the software is set-up to only ask you for permission/confirm your changes once you've changed something. Mine didn't ask me to authenticate my system changes until I moved the English line above the English (United States) line and then moved it back to it's original position and clicked the "Apply System-Wide" button. It should ask for the same kind of authentication when installing/removing any locale packages in the same software, but not in the terminal window.

    *Just a quick add-on tip for any new Ubuntu 10.10 users
