I figured it out!
I had been using lightdm-gtk-greeter all this time, but had no language picker option. I followed a somewhat-related troubleshooting thingy on the Arch Wiki and got not only the missing language switcher but also the missing power button.
For future people, here is what I did exactly:
sudo vim /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
(or the text editor of your choice, I use vim but the mod here seems to recommend nano)
I then added the following line to the end:
indicators = ~host;~spacer;~clock;~spacer;~language;~session;~a11y;~power
After rebooting and switching the language picker to eo.utf8, my system is now properly in Esperanto.
Dankon por via helpo, joekamprad!
This is the output of localectl. As I suspected, it’s already set. Bash is already in Esperanto.
[[email protected] ~]$ localectl System Locale: LANG=eo.utf8 VC Keymap: dvorak X11 Layout: us X11 Variant: dvorak
So I don’t believe that step would change anything. I’ll try posting to the Xfce forums too.
I was feeling sure that I had already done all of that, but I just did it again to be sure. Xfce is still in English. And below is the output of the locale command:
[[email protected] ~]$ locale LANG=eo.utf8 LC_CTYPE="eo.utf8" LC_NUMERIC="eo.utf8" LC_TIME="eo.utf8" LC_COLLATE="eo.utf8" LC_MONETARY="eo.utf8" LC_MESSAGES="eo.utf8" LC_PAPER="eo.utf8" LC_NAME="eo.utf8" LC_ADDRESS="eo.utf8" LC_TELEPHONE="eo.utf8" LC_MEASUREMENT="eo.utf8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="eo.utf8" LC_ALL=
Is there anything else I could be missing here?
I would like to switch the language to Esperanto. I have altered my .bashrc and my ~/.config/locale.conf to include
export LANG=eo.utf8, and my .dmrc file to include
Language=eo.utf8and while bash has changed to Esperanto, I am so far unable to get the changes to reflect on Xfce.
It’s reflected when I switch to KDE, but I want to use Xfce.
Howdy everyone! My name is Rosetta and I’ve been an Antergos user since September 2014 (aside from the somewhat recent time I switched to OpenSUSE for a little while, but we don’t talk about that). Antergos is the only distro that’s truly made my computer feel just right. I love how easy it is to set up and use, even my dad uses it :)
Anyway, I’d like to get involved with the project!
