I recently dual booted Ubuntu version 15.04 alongside Windows 10 on my Dell Inspiron 3451. I got the .iso file from Ubuntu's main site, and I used a live USB install in UEFI mode.
I am a new Linux user, and this is my first time using the OS. My problem is that even though I selected an English locale, and English default languages, I still have folders and menus that appear in Chinese. When I go to my Language Support settings, I have a handful of default English variations at the top, and Chinese all the way at the bottom. Going to the install/remove languages tab, The only two languages selected are English, and Chinese. I try to uncheck Chinese to uninstall, but the window simply grays out and the cursor changes into a loading wheel until I get tired of waiting and close the window.
I tried pretty much everything. Doing some research, I found that you can change this via the terminal, using
sudo apt-get install localepurge, except, I have no idea whatsoever how to actually SELECT the two options that I need (en & en_US). When I press enter, the window closes and a command runs, I try to shift/ctrl + 8 for an asterisk, yet that doesn't work either. Can someone give me some insight on this?
It seems like no other options are working for me. Half of the stuff is in Chinese and the other half English. I would just like to completely remove Chinese from my system so that I can try to enjoy this OS. Any help or insight will be greatly appreciated. :)
Also, please assume that I don't know anything about this OS. I can follow terminal instructions, though. Thanks!
