KDE stores its language settings in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals, so I
think this may be a good start point. I would suggest something like:

    if test -r $KDEGLOBALS; then
        LANG=`awk -F= '/^Language=/ {print $2}' $KDEGLOBALS`
        export LANG

or something similar in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/91setlang and/or /etc/profile.

Not tested, no warranty, blah blah blah, but HTH.

One way to make your old car run better is to look up the price of a new model.
