Fine tune the Local Settings of Ubuntu

I like my installation in English. Most of the solution you’ll find on the internet are in English.

So I installed my laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 ( Lucid Lynx ) in English.
One of the first things that annoys me is the clock. It shows the time in Am / Pm format.
Date, time and currency are in US style.

To change this, just manually edit /etc/environment
This is mine

PATH=”/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games”
LANG=”en_US.UTF-8″
LANGUAGE=”en_US:en”

LC_CTYPE=”nl_NL.UTF-8″
LC_COLLATE=”nl_NL.UTF-8″
LC_TIME=”nl_NL.UTF-8″
LC_NUMERIC=”nl_NL.UTF-8″
LC_MONETARY=”nl_NL.UTF-8″
