10.1 few questions- open office / speed / windows
As a total newbie to linux - I've managed to install 10.1 on an old K62 500 64mb laptop. and have a few questions.
1. I've installed Open Office and it is running in something other than English (possibly Catalan which the install process told me it must install language support for) - how do I get this back to English.
2. I was expecting it to run slowly 'cos of system spec, but it takes anything from 15 seconds to 3 minutes to launch an application (which I'm sure it shouldn't) - any suggestions on that (there appears to be a 484mb swap file set up duing the install process - if that has anything to do with it)
3. I'm obviously used to running windows, and so am looking for equivalent features to scandisk,defrag etc... where can i find these???
Thanks in advance - I'm sure I'll have loads more to ask.
