How did i fix my locale issues in Ubuntu
Im probably in the middle of setting out our prod environment in aws ec2 install through ssh. But evertime i do run an installation for a new version of ruby an error probably occurs telling
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = "en_US:en", LC_ALL = (unset), LC_MESSAGES = "en_US.UTF-8", 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_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory (Reading database ... 21173 files and directories currently installed.) Removing bind9 ... * Stopping domain name service... bind9 [ OK ] Processing triggers for man-db ... locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
What i specifically do to solve the problem and fix the error is
1.Check the list of locale i have to see what should i miss or have.
$ sudo locale
it would display list of locale settings
LANG=C LANGUAGE= (unset) LC_CTYPE=fi_FI.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC="C" LC_TIME="C" LC_COLLATE=fi_FI.UTF-8 LC_MONETARY="C" LC_MESSAGES=fi_FI.UTF-8 LC_PAPER="C" LC_NAME="C" LC_ADDRESS="C" LC_TELEPHONE="C" LC_MEASUREMENT="C" LC_IDENTIFICATION="C" LC_ALL=(unset)
you will see some locales that havent set yet.
2.Generate missing locales
$ sudo locale-gen en_PH.UTF-8
this will output a result of
Generating locales... fi_FI.UTF-8... done Generation complete.
3.Lastly reconfig your locales with the generated missing locales you got.
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales Generating locales... en_US.UTF-8... done fi_FI.UTF-8... up-to-date Generation complete.
After this errors occuring for locales problem is gone
