This should work but it's more of a workaround than solution and I haven't personally tested it. Try changing your language to English in Settings and then use button "Apply to login screen, guest account and new users". Later on change back to Malay on your account and don't use the option to apply Malay to login screen. The result should be English as ...

Take a look in the following files: ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs ~/.config/user-dirs.locale This files are created by the xdg-user-dir tool. The .dirs file have the actual names of the default user folders, and the .locale file keeps the language they are set.

Make sure your system is up-to-date first (there have been updates related to language settings recently): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Then go to System Settings > Language & Region (example screenshot), click on English in the left sidebar and then "Set System Language". You will likely have to enter your password to proceed.

There is no way to change the spell checker language on Geary 0.10 (or 0.11). But that should be available in Geary 0.12 when released. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=720335

In short, there should be. Elementary's Mail is based on Geary, which added support for changing spell check dictionaries in June 2016. The feature does not appear to have been ported to the elementary version. As an alternative, you can install and use Geary until elementary addresses the issue (sudo apt install geary). I opened a feature request for the ...

I have the same issue, to fix it unlock, select and remove each other language listed except yours with the minus symbol below the list.

This was an issue with someone mistakenly entering French translations into the translation website. This only affected the English (UK) translations, US English was unaffected.

Shift+ Caps Lock shortcut does work well if you set it to switch your keyboard layouts, I checked on that. However, to be able to actually type with Korean characters instead of Latin ones, in addition to Korean keyboard layout you have to install additional input method (Korean Hangul). On how to do that in Ubuntu-based OS, please refer to this page. In ...

Great to see a fellow Thai in here. Now as for the font, I assume you want to change it to Thai serif font. Elementary OS come with both san-serif and serif Thai fonts. All you need to do is change the default font from san-serif to serif. And you can do that by copying these font files: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto/NotoSerifThai-Bold.ttf /usr/share/...

You can try this: First open Terminal and type the following command: sudo update-locale LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 Second logout and login again or reboot your machine.

What's used in the second field of the layout? Maybe you can change it to default there. (Or simply delete your current layout and add a fresh one)

Got the same thing happening as well... My workarournd in the "SystemSettings" window is click on "unlock"button in the right upper corner as admin and add a language on the "+" button on the left corner. WHen I added my language this way somehow all other languages where shown as well at this point.

If you press Unlock and put your password, then the + sign works and you can add a language. After that you will see everything.

I guess Telegram expects the wrong input method. You have two ways to fix it: Tell Telegram (and other Qt apps) to use xim Just set QT_IM_MODULE=xim before running it Run ibus Add ibus-daemon to your startup applications I don't know which one is better. There is a discussion in Telegram's github: https://github.com/telegramdesktop/tdesktop/issues/1041

To "complete installation" you have to unlock the panel with the lock button ("Unlock" or "Déverrouiller" in the french version), as this changement requires administrator rights.

Adding the Greek layout in the keyboard settings should be enough.

Actually using only the language code (and nothing of the variant) is hard-coded in the source of wingpanel-indicator-keyboard. So you can either edit the source code or open a feature request.

I have been researching about your problem and finally found a plausible explanation: "A package only gets updates if it is installed, so if the languages are updated, they must be installed somehow. To manage installed packages in a detailed way, Synaptic is a convenient tool. You can install Synaptic from the Software Center (or by the command sudo apt-...
