View Full Version : [SOLVED] Override System Locale

I am running Fedora MATE 26, the system/default locale is set to en_US.UTF-8.

I have created a new user, and I want that user to use zh_CN.UTF-8 locale, thus overriding the system locale.

I have also created a file ~/.config/locale.conf for the new user, containing the following statement:

LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8

But this did not help; after reboot the locale for the new user still remains the same as the system locale.

on the login screen, click where it says the language in the top bar and you should be able to change it there

Thanks! Done!

(Also, I have to delete the ~/.config/locale.conf file before it worked.)
