Change locale in CentOS 6.3

MyTitle asked:

I want to change locale in CentOs 6.3 to English. But after changing, only root account have English interface… Another user still have Russian interface. But I changed locale to:

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"

inside /etc/sysconfig/i18n file. Also i tried to change it using GUI utility – system-config-language. After changes I always reboot my machine. Nothing help.

Thanks.

My answer:


Each user can have his own language settings. So when a user goes to log in, the language changes to whatever language he used previously.

So for a user to change his language, he should first click his username in the list on the login screen, but do not type the password yet. Then go to the bottom center of the screen to change the language to the desired language he wants.
