Hello, I am running Ubuntu from a DVD to see if I would like to switch to it. Being totally unfamiliar with the OS, apart from what little I've picked up since last night, I have very little knowledge of how to make things work.
My primary language is English, but I absolutely must be able to type in simplified Chinese characters, because I am learning Chinese for school.
Last night my keyboard suddenly started using what I think is the US keyboard layout when i live in the UK. Shift-2 which should be """" instead are the @ symbol and vice versa as well as a whole bunch of other weird key mappings.
I have a problem with the language support in Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I want to install Spanish in my computer and the system isn't able to find or create the directory that will allow the system to actually set Spanish as a language option inside Language support. So I am wondering how can I tell the system where are those files or how to fix this in any other way.
Am working on android framework level. When I change the language from "Settings" -> "Language & keyboard settings" -> "Select Locale"(or "Select Language") then our Launcher and Apps not change the language dynamically. But when we reboot the device then that changes will be reflected. Any one have any idea about this problem?
I have been using Ubuntu 11.04 until yesterday when I decided to install new 12.04 from a fresh install. I like changing system language interface from my primary language (Galician) to English when logging, in order to practice this language, but in the new lightdm I cannot see how. Is it possible?
