Ubuntu – Ubuntu 17.10 is in French when I set English

language-supportsystem-language

I'd like to change the language of Ubuntu 17.10 to English (from French). I've changed it in the GNOME Settings:

enter image description here

And:

$ cat /etc/default/locale 
LANG=en_US.UTF-8

I've logged out and rebooted but everything is still in French (command line prompts and GNOME interface).

Any hint?

  • Thanks to comments on the question, I checked my .bashrc file and I still had some traces of a previously set locale:

    export LC_CTYPE=fr_BE.UTF-8
    export LC_ALL=fr_BE.UTF-8
    

    Removing them solved the issue.
