[Debian 3.1] Locale Problems

Recommended Posts


This problem has been keeping me from upgrading my Debian system to the unstable packages and is starting to get quite annoying. I tried searching for this on Google and all I got back was some rather useless mailing list results that didn't help.

Anways, everytime I try to upgrade my packages, I keep getting these error messages from perl:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:

LANGUAGE= "en_CA:en_US:en_GB:en"

LC_ALL= (unset)

LANG = "en_CA"

are supported and installed on your system.

perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

It ultimately failsand just completely breaks the system. I've never had this problem occur before. This happens if I use the lastest stable and testing install CD

The output of locale in the terminal shows everthing as being set except for LC_ALL. I have no idea how to set it. This happens if I choose any other english locale.

Try adding the following line to the end of your .bashrc:

export LC_ALL=en_CA
