Locale settings defined outside /etc/locale.conf

OK so some initial steps:

  1. Edit /etc/locale.gen and make sure the locales you want are uncommented (e.g.

    de_BE.UTF-8 UTF-8
    en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8

    (keeping en_US enabled can help with certain software).

  2. Run sudo locale-gen and verify the same locales you uncommented are being generated.

  3. Check the contents of /etc/locale.conf and set it to the LANG you want. The only contents in mine is:


    Note that this is the first part of the line in locale.conf

  4. Reboot for good measure.

If the issue persists then check the settings within your DE and within Garuda Settings Manager.
