Changing locale on Pinebook Pro
#1
When running the installation process on the new Pinebook Pro, I inadvertently selected the wrong locale, so the desktop is now in Catalan (I think).
What is the simplest process to correct the locale (to English, Canadian or US)?

If I had an installation medium, I'd just re-run the install and pick the right value this time. (Is there some way to do that with the machine as delivered?)
(There's nothing on the system that can't be wiped out and reset.)

If it's possible to change a value in a configuration file (or files), what are the files and values? (I think I can stumble through nano). Please assume a
combination of Unix background and momentary fumbling.

For a simple difficulty, I'd probably try asking the distribution site, but this problem's at the intersection of software and hardware.

(I'm anxious to get the machine usable; what I've seen so far is very attractive.)
