I have just upgraded from Kubuntu 12.04 to 13.04, reassigning my former home partition to this new version.
Though I live in Nepal, locale settings are set to show English. However, some applications show Nepali numbers or letters.
Skype shows Nepali numbers to display time in chats. Conky (vainly) displays date and time using Nepali numbers and letters. Dolfin shows Nepali number to indicate disk usage.
How can I impose the right locale settings on those applications?
I found a documentation on locales.
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_GB:en LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC=ne_NP LC_TIME=ne_NP LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY=ne_NP LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8" LC_PAPER=ne_NP LC_NAME=ne_NP LC_ADDRESS=ne_NP LC_TELEPHONE=ne_NP LC_MEASUREMENT=ne_NP LC_IDENTIFICATION=ne_NP LC_ALL=
So obviously, the NP shouldn't be here. I have to find a way to change the settings through terminal since my System Settings > Locale don't seem to take effect. (Something went wrong with the upgrade?)
