I installed a new locale today because I want to post to a French
newsgroup that does not accept articles in utf8, my default character
set (god knows why).
curty@einstein:~$ locale -a
So when I log back in to gnome (I even rebooted like a loser after my
first failure) shouldn't the gdm3 language chooser give me the option of
choosing French as a language now? Because it doesn't. It just offers
me English, exactly as it did before I installed the French locale.
What am I missing? What should I do to make it work? I did choose
en_US.utf8 as my default locale, but I have the right to do that, don't
Instead of rebooting I should have just restarted gdm3
service gdm3 restart
I don't know what files it sources to get the available locales
