Can you explain this a little further?

Are you looking for an application that converts currencies or do you mean preferences in, e.g. OpenOffice?

you can use keurocalc

you need to have extra repositories enabled..
To enable all the software repositories do ref this link..

after getting all the required repositories enabled

Type the following command in a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal)

sudo aptitude install keurocalc

I have the same problem, I want to change the option dollars in the programme Eqonomyze. Can someone help with that. I do not need a calculator, I want to change the sign from dollars in euro's

Dmitry Nesterov (keyd) said : #4

To change currency in eqonomize you need to change locale in kde.
To do this you need open file /home/`whoami`/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals and add|change section [Locale] like this (in my case country is Russia):

Thanks keyd, the locale thing works a treat.

Can you help with this problem?
