- Some menus are in Chinese/Japanese! 3 answers
I have made some changes in system settings, following suggestions by some users. However, this morning when I did a reboot I am unable to see English as my default language. My system is showing some Chinese characters which I do not understand.
All I wanted was to use Libre Office for a particular document in Hindi. What happened is that even Gmail is opening in Chinese. The system settings folder and others are also opening in Chinese. I am unable to use the system now.
I have uploaded the snapshots here: please have a look.
- Upon a reboot, I was asked to rename all folders.
- Gmail opening in Chinese
- This is how menu on my system looks: half English and half Chinese
Notice that in the third snapshot the calendar and menu are appearing in Chinese.
I want the original US English menus and folder names back. I just wanted to type a document with Lohit Hindi font in Libre Office.
I use Ubuntu 11.10. I do not use Unity, only Gnome desktop. I installed gnome-session-fallback a long time back and have been using that ever since.
How do I get back to all English submenus and English folder names? I have a US English Keyboard and I use only US English. This thing which is now somehow set is unwanted.
