xfce terminal locale problem

Postby sxphild » 19 Jun 2020 02:23

Using SolydX 201701 on Dell 1525.
This came up recently..
Every time I open a terminal, I get this message:

"locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory"

It doesn't stop the terminal prompt, just an annoyance..
I searched online, found a few answers, which didn't work.
e.g. running dpkg-reconfigure locale..

When I run locale in terminal I get:

Code: Select all

LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
When I run locale -a, get

Code: Select all

C
C.UTF-8
en_US.utf8
POSIX
This all seems right, but the error still keeps popping up.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Thx

Phil

First, let's try this:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
sudo locale-gen
The first command lets you re-configure your locale. Make sure to select en_US.UTF8.
The second command generates the localisation files.

I don't know if a reboot is needed, but do it just to be sure.

If that didn't work you can always add this in your ~/.bashrc file:

Code: Select all

export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"

Arjen,

This is the result of running dpkg0reconfigure locales

Code: Select all

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
	LANGUAGE = (unset),
	LC_ALL = (unset),
	LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: locales is broken or not fully installed

Sorry about the typo (I meant dpkg-reconfigure locales, with the
hyphen)

You missed the locale-gen command before dpkg-reconfigure.

For reference I'll copy the content of the configuration files here. Use this if the locale-gen command gives you errors. Copy the content to your files and run the above commands again.

/etc/locale.gen

Code: Select all

# This file lists locales that you wish to have built. You can find a list
# of valid supported locales at /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED, and you can add
# user defined locales to /usr/local/share/i18n/SUPPORTED. If you change
# this file, you need to rerun locale-gen.

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

Note: I did this. Hasn't affected anything else in the system that I can tell.
Was this OK to do?

These are not packages that are installed by default on SolydX. So, I think you're safe to remove those packages.

I forgot to mention that the reinstall command
said there were a number of unmet dependencies
(? since it was working before...how did they get deleted?)

Anyway, I let apt install them...

The list of those to be removed (that I listed) came after that.

Thank you again!

Phil.

What exactly did it say? That would have been the relevant part of the output. But never mind if everything works now.
