(reported) locale R2D2 install

PostPosted by mrneilypops » Fri Jul 21, 2017 3:49 am

I noticed an issue with regard to locale settings after installing R2D2.
/etc/locales.conf had an example line uncommented for en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
(I require en_GB.UTF-8) as per;

Code: Select all
 Configuration file for locale-gen
#
# lists of locales that are to be generated by the locale-gen command.
#
# Each line is of the form:
#
#     <locale> <charset>
#
#  where <locale> is one of the locales given in /usr/share/i18n/locales
#  and <charset> is one of the character sets listed in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps
#
#  Examples:
#  en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
#  de_DE ISO-8859-1
#  de_DE@euro ISO-8859-15
#
#  The locale-gen command will generate all the locales,
#  placing them in /usr/lib/locale.
#
#  A list of supported locales is included in this file.
#  Uncomment the ones you need.
#



This resulted in a 'mixed' /etc/locale.conf;
Code: Select all
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=en_US.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_US.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8
LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8
LC_NAME=en_US.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
LC_PAPER=en_US.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=en_US.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8


I fixed this, after commenting out en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 in the example , with;
export LC_ALL="en_GB.UTF-8"

Code: Select all
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_MONETARY=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_NAME=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_PAPER=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8


Hope this helps.
I would not have noticed this if I had not been setting up polybar with glyphs and locales were mentioned as a possible problem in glyphs not showing...
