I'm trying to change the regional/local settings. I googled a lot but no results that helped me.
I want to solve the following:
- Orange and Conky show sunday as first day of the week... my week starts on monday
- In gnumeric numbers are shown as 34,200.00 instead of 34.200,00

This is what i get:
Doesn't say much does it....
i think my system language and settings are en_US.utf8
Anyway, I don't think "C" is what you want for your locale- that's a sort of default.

Thanks for the response...
After a lot of reading i still didn't know what to do.
So i thought... i just give it a try, and i edited /etc/default/locale
# File generated by update-locale
it seems to work... calendar is in dutch and messages in english...
If this is a good solution, than it is pretty simple and might help more people.

I can't find language-selector in the repository. And i just want to change some settings to dutch, not my system language, messages etc.
Did you solve this?
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
Choose your locales(with spacebar) and set the default one.

Kodx suggestion changes everything (language, messages, etc) on my system. I want most stuff to be in english, and i just need some locale settings. Post 6 solves the problem for me now, so i stick to that solution.
