Exactly the problem! I'm not French and I want English measurements to

It looks like there isn't a gui for it any more, but see this URL for
how to change it:

You want to change the 1 in the following section to a 2.
LC_MEASUREMENT
measurement 1
END LC_MEASUREMENT

I've done that to no obvious effect. Before you ask, I did reboot after the change so I'm stumped again (although I must be in the correct area). A little more poking around in the locale file to see if there is another parameter to change. ;-)


I'm not sure to what you refer in "changing the default paper size". I
can't
find a location in which to set that parameter. It certainly isn't in
"Printers"
from the "Applications" menu.

You want the "Printing" application which is actually
"system-config-printer".

That's fixed now. I found an HP Device Manager in the Applications menu and effected the change.

Many thanks for your help.
