I do work with the mate desktop and did try to change the language for my user to German. I could do this with the “Mate User Manager”. I already installed a German user on my system so I did not have to install langpacks-de
How changing the user language to de i tried do find out in this part of the Manual > Managing Users and Groups :: Fedora Docs I assumed to find it there because with the “Mate User Manager” i do the same ?!
Can someone help me to achieve this totaly in a terminal?
Not works. I did boot, that’s why i linked the manuals. There is not really a hint how to make the user change for an existing user except the picture how to change in the settings of gnome.
When i do it in the “Mate User Manager” i can log out and log in again and the language is changed. I guess the tool is needed to make the changes just in the DE. And it seams there are differences between them.
It seams there are two different paths to go.
If I just have a text based system, i need to create the initramfs new incl. the boot menu and then it is system wide. But this is not what i want.
While using a Desktop environment i have to do the changes there. It would mean on a gnome DE i would have to do it in dconf somewhere?
I have used that command and it indeed changed the language setting on my system. Looks like something is overwriting the value in the /etc/locale.conf file. If you are using Bash, check if there are anything setting the locale in /etc/profile, /etc/profile.d, /etc/bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.profile, ~/.bashrc, or any other file you use to set environment variables. If you are using another shell, check the related files to set your shell environment.
I checked it on a almost new F36 installation. There it is as it should be. Later today when i find time i will check it on my F35 with a new user to confirm if this is just a config problem or a bug in F35.
