Have been trying out Austrumi-2.1.6 "Live CD" and i really like the look of the OS. But the only problem i have encountered so far is i can't get the OS to boot up in the English language. Help anyone please

I have been running Austrumi 2.1.6 no problem but after it boots up everything is in a foreign language. Would just like to change the language to English so i could understand all the options available on the desktop etc.

Followed the link you provided and wrote down all the commands. But when i booted up Austrumi and opened a terminal i typed: locale -a and i was immediately rewarded with the following output:

C
el_GR.utf8
es_ES.utf8
fr_FR.utf8
hu_HU.utf8
it_IT.utf8
Itg_LV.utf8
lv_LV.utf8
POSIX
ru_RU.utf8
uk_UA.utf8
UTF-8

None of the other commands like: man setlocale or man locale worked. Kept getting 'Command not found'. So could you tell me how to run: uk_UA.utf8 in the terminal please.

Finally found my way to System information -> Languages and found that there is not an option for the English language available. It's a pity because i really did intend trying to install this OS to the hard drive. Don't feel confident enough to go tampering with system files listed in a foreign language so it looks as if i will have to say good bye to Austrumi 2.1.6 for now. Shall keep an eye out for Austrumi 2.1.7 which may have better language options. Thanks for the help cryptodan

I have found out since my last post that there is another "newer" version of Austrumi called 2.1.7. But i shall look forward to your comments regarding Austrumi 2.1.6. Thanks
