            Bug ID: 397543
           Summary: vim/gvim show half english half japanese user
           Product: konsole
           Version: 17.12.3
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: trijezdci at gmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

All my system's locale settings are set to en_IE.UTF-8, but the time zone is
set to Tokyo/Japan and the ip address is also identifiable as being located in

For some unfathomable reason, vi (and some other apps) give me a half-english
and half-japanese user interface/messages.

When I start vi, I get this

~                             VIM - Vi IMproved                               
~                              version 8.0.1453

~               終了するには           :q<Enter>                              
~               オンラインヘルプは     :help<Enter> か <F1>                   
~               バージョン情報は       :help version8<Enter>                  

also in the lower right corner vi shows: 全て, which is Japanese for "all".

I used discover to remove and reinstall GVim, but to no avail.

I also created a .vimrc file with

et langmenu=en_IE.UTF-8
language messages en_IE.UTF-8

but again to no avail.

I also have a similar issue with VLC media player.

For some unfathomable reason, these apps ignore my system's locale settings and
give me a half-english and half-japanese UI. Maybe this is due to the server
from which the debian packages are downloaded upon install. Or maybe it is due
to the IP address, or the time zone, possibly during installation, maybe
Discover picks the wrong package based on IP or time zone.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
