Display language issue
I have antergos linux with my system. But installed qt5's display language is not English. It's some arabic language that I can't even understand. Can someone please tell me how to change the language?
Hi and welcome to the forums.
You mean inside QtCreator ?
I meant in qt5 setting and in qt V4L2. Is there any language option in qt5 setting?
Im not sure what that is?
You mean change language for a compiled app ?
So basically when I installed okular, it was showing some arabic language. But since okular is based on qt5 then I checked that so whole problem was starting from qt5 configuration tool. In this tool box everything is in Arabic so I'm not being able to get anything. I want to change the display language for this qt5 configuration tool.
so its not with Qt development tool but okular
qt5 configuration tool.
this one ?
did u try start it from shell with
LC_ALL=C /xx/okular an see if it reacts to that ?
Yes. Is there any language tab there?
Not in the version i could find. only icons and looks.
maybe under interface.
im sitting in windows so cant run it currently.
update: found the source
seems not to be language option
I have version 0.35. If you can find an answer please ping me.
did u try the shell thing ?
Yes, I did. It's showing "can't change locale". Actually I am working with Gnome environment and okular is for KDE. Does that sound problematic?
Can anyone solve this issue?
What locale are you using ?
What does your distribution provide to setup language support ?
What desktop system are you using ?
@SGaist hi, thanks for replying.
I'm using Antergos linux with GNOME3 environment. The locale of system is en_US.UTF-8.
The main problem with system is that it doesn't support any devanagari script in any browser. When I installed devanagari font separately, it's changing the language of qt5ct and qt based apps.
For installing the font separately I used the command "sudo pacman -S ttf-indic-otf".
Any further help will be appreciated.
KDE has it's own system for loading translations, and Okular is a KDE application.
KDE settings have a Language setting where you can select the Preferred Language: For Plasma 5, you can open it by launching 'systemsettings' (sometimes called 'systemsettings5').
Alternatively you can try setting KDE_LANG environment variable, e.g. KDE_LANG=en_US.
If this doesn't help, I suggest contacting a KDE forum.
