    Avaliable Language

    Hello

    Sorry to be a pain, I did a fresh install.

    And under the Available languages it only has American English and I want to install British English and I can seem to find out how to do it. Under Spell Check and Formatting I can select British English not a problem.

    There isn't an Add languages button in the bottom right corner in System Settings > Regional Settings > Language?

    How weird indeed...
    I installed Bionic earlier this year and ever since I did it does include languages I've never ever heard about in my life like cestina (with unknown diacritics).
    Got a bad disc?
    Have you ever seen any popup window telling you that there are pending language packages to be installed?

    There was a message but I cant remember of my life what it was. It is no biggy about this. But is there anyway to install the English GB language pack by command line. I have installed with Pen Drive. Used it quite a few times and this is the only time I have noticed it

    Launch Muon Package Manager and search for language.

    In a console enter apt search wbritish . If it is not installed then sudo apt install wbritish.
    Both 'wamerican' and 'wbritish' are on my system but British is the only language I have marked as available in System Settings.

    Thanks will give that a go and see what happens. I will then do another install just to see if same thing happens. The only change is that I have used the
    kubuntu-18.04.4-desktop-amd64
