Working in a multicultural environment, I recently needed to switch the language displayed in my computer GUI (Debian 11 installed with Cinnamon). And I did not manage to do it easily!
I have been searching around for a while to find out how to add an additional language to my new Cinnamon installation. Obviously, reading from the internet, there should be a Languages icon in Cinnamon System Settings panel.
But this icon does not exist on my installation. Where did it go?
How can I have it back?
The workaround I used:
- Close the Cinnamon session and open a Gnome session
- Go to the Gnome system settings, choose the Country and Language menu, and select the language.
- Then go back to a Cinnamon session
