    Locales and languages are wrongly set

    'Messed up' sounds a bit more accurate.
    Ok, so maybe this will explain almost everything. I'm from Poland, I want my system to be in Polish but Gnome Language Support will never allow me to do so.
    Code:
    $ locale 
    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
    LANG=pl
    LANGUAGE=pl:en
    LC_CTYPE="pl"
    LC_NUMERIC="pl"
    LC_TIME="pl"
    LC_COLLATE="pl"
    LC_MONETARY="pl"
    LC_MESSAGES="pl"
    LC_PAPER="pl"
    LC_NAME="pl"
    LC_ADDRESS="pl"
    LC_TELEPHONE="pl"
    LC_MEASUREMENT="pl"
    LC_IDENTIFICATION="pl"
    LC_ALL=
    $ locale -a
    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_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory
    C
    POSIX
    en_AG
    en_AG.utf8
    en_AU.utf8
    en_BW.utf8
    en_CA.utf8
    en_DK.utf8
    en_GB.utf8
    en_HK.utf8
    en_IE.utf8
    en_IN
    en_IN.utf8
    en_NG
    en_NG.utf8
    en_NZ.utf8
    en_PH.utf8
    en_SG.utf8
    en_US.utf8
    en_ZA.utf8
    en_ZW.utf8
    pl_PL.utf8
    This is the config I get every single time I restart system. It was freshly installed today after it became completely useless because of some kind of data corruption my Windows was proud to make.
    Screen from the program itself: http://i52.tinypic.com/28l73mq.jpg
    I also get loads of errors when installing or removing software.

    Any help shall be appreciated.

    Same here with German...

    Did you let the installer download language packages?

    Have you tried to remove Polish from the installed languages?


    Please remove Polish via Language Selector.

    Then start Ubuntu Software Center, search for "polish" and install all the language-packs.

    Worked for me.

    I have a similar problem, only with English. I upgraded to 11.04 from maverick and emerald won't work because the locale is set incorrectly.
