Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kubuntu-desktop


I just installed kubuntu knot-3 and installed it in german language. All
went fine so far.

But locale settings were not set to german within KDE, they were still
set to "C".

I had to do the following to correct this:
(As I have a german desktop I try to translate the following back to english so it might not 100% fit the wording on the original english desktop...)
K-Menu -> system settings -> Personal / Locale settings and Language ->
(here "Country or Region" was set to "C") -> Central Europen -> Germany

Now I have correct Time/Money/Language settings etc.

I think john doe will not correct/check that setting if he is new to the
system but instead will wonder why some system settings for money / time
/ numbers are a bit strange on his brandnew non-english linuxsystem...

I think this should be set according to the information entered at
install time.
