[SOLVED] How to change the Language just for gunchash???

Hello everyone,
I started using gunchash. My system is in English. But i would like to have gunchash in German so it automatically loads the German bank account names. The only way i managed to change gunchash to German was to change the whole system to German.
Is there a way to set the language just for some programs??
I couldn't find any us full information in the Wiki or on the gunchash page.

Thanks for your help

Micah

I have an English system. When I start for example the gimp like this:

LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 gimp

gimp's UI comes up in German. I don't know if it also works with gnucash, but might be worth a try.

You would need to have the respective locales enabled and generated, I guess.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … ide#Locale

Assuming that you uncommented both English and German locales from /etc/locale.gen and ran locale-gen, open a terminal and run:

$ LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
$ gunchash

When you're done, set it back to English:

$ LANG=en_US.UTF-8

You can probably also create a script:

# nano /bin/guncash-de
#!/bin/sh
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
gunchash
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
# chmod +x /bin/guncash-de

Then just run:

$ guncash-de

Edit: "guncash", lol. Well, you spelled it that way, and it's just and example anyway. So deal with it.

Don't forget to mark the topic as solved (by editing the first post) so that other people (including yourself sometimes) may find useful.


Edit: And I agree with the suggestion to run:

$ LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 gnucash

If you want to turn it into a script, go ahead. It's your system. This way you won't need to open a terminal.

#!/bin/sh
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 gnucash
