I installed ubuntu 13.04 with the default language English, yet the calendar is displayed in local language ( Arabic ) , is there a way to change the calendar language to English ?

  • @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 :( Nov 16, 2013 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.
