Any chance you can add an image of that? – Mitch Apr 30 '13 at 8:05
@Mitch, I had to read a Gimp tutorial to crop images ! I'll need a lot of time to get used to Ubuntu after all these years of using windows :( – Muhammad Gelbana Nov 16 '13 at 22:07

Go to System Settings, then to Language Support. From there open the second tab which is named "Regional Formats". Then change the drop down bar's content from "Arabic" to the English language variant you like and you're all set.

Re-login for this to take effect
