how do I change the standard language setting to use British English (en_GB)?? I do not want to use american English.
That's not a Xfce thing. You have to change the system settings.
This setting is really very system and distro-specific. If you do have a folder called '/etc/env.d/' just add a file called something like 02language and put your locale in it. Then update the environment and do a reboot or just source
if [ -d /etc/env.d ]; then echo "LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8" >> /etc/env.d/02language env-update source /etc/profile fi echo $LC_ALL
that's how one would do it on a normal Gentoo system. So you have to find out how you would do that on your system if it works differently. Be sure to also have compiled the locales.
Please ask the guys from your distro about it, since it's not an Xfce issue
