I installed FlareGet from the Ubuntu Software Center, but found that the language is not English. It is in Spanish or French or something, I don't know.

How can I change the language of FlareGet to English?

  1. Run sudo nano /etc/default/locale

  2. Make file looks like this:

  3. Run sudo locale-gen.

  4. Log-out and log-in again

  • Won't this be global? – user25656 Sep 7 '13 at 6:18
  • Yes, it will. In this case QT application ignores $LANG and reads $LC_NUMERIC or $LC_ALL. To set locale only for one user lines like export LANG=en_AU.UTF-8 should be added to ~/.bashrc – sorgel Sep 7 '13 at 6:23
  • There is a GUI for handling language and locales settings (Language Support), but if you set LC_ALL permanently, you in effect disable Language Support. LC_ALL should never be set in /etc/default/locale. In addition, setting LANG in ~/.bashrc is also bad advice, since Language Support stores its user level settings in ~/.pam_environment and ~/.bashrc would override PAM. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Sep 8 '13 at 18:15

please download flareget from its website:


The version in Ubuntu Software Center is old, and even doesn't support browser integration.
