So is there a login manager that really change the session language?
I was thinking that there must be a "unified" way for setting language...
Because when I selected French or English, Gnome and KDE was set

Excuse-me if I wasn't aware of the way it was working...

Yup!... Don't want to bother anyone. ;)

And a last question: the BROWSER and LC_ALL (and others) variables, are
they set by default by XFCE4 in the .bashrc? Or the .bashrc isn't touched
by the installation of XFCE4?

Thanks for your reply!
