I was using an input source (bengali-avro to be specific) . Out of the blue the locale started disturbing. So I couldn't type language properly.So I remove the source. then I set the /etc/environment
LC_ALL=bn_BD.UTF-8 . and locale-gen . The problem is , when I removed the source , it was removed from the window 'choose an input source' It was gone , but it was still visible in the system tray.
After the latest Java vulnerability debacle I decided to remove it completely from my system (lubuntu 12.04). I did this through the Lubuntu Software Centre. However, when I run Update Manager I still receive suggested important security updates for Java.
