My ubuntu 10.04 machine displays menu in Greek, instead of English for applications like: texworks, djview, ipe,virtualbox etc. For many other applications like xterm, matlab, openoffice etc the menu font is English itself. I want all menu fonts to be in English and how to do this? Screen shots are pasted below:

It’s English, just with the symbol font. No idea what caused this, though. – kinokijuf Dec 14 '11 at 7:39
