I am trying to set the language of my Lenovo laptop to English while keeping my region and Formats set in German. It seems I can only keep the language set with the region of the native speaking country if that makes any sense, anyone know any ways around this?
I have the same setup you're looking for. This can be changed in the System Settings app.
All Settings > Personal > Language & Region.
- Language: English
- Region: United States
- Formats: Germany
This way I can have English language applications, a dvorak alternate keyboard layout and German date formats. Day of the week and month names are still German. To change that you'll need dconf-editor and you'll need to do some experimentation in system/locale.
