View Full Version : [ubuntu] locale/lang hell

October 18th, 2011, 04:40 AM
How in the hell do you get the language/locale changed from en_US to en_US.UTF-8???

Desktop installed on a laptop, 2.6.32-34-generic-pae #77-Ubuntu SMP 10.04 LTS installed and updated.

Somehow the installation got set to en_US and not en_US.UTF-8.
Every time I ssh into another server, ncurses displays are all screwed up.

I have reconfigured locales, purged, uninstalled, reinstalled - everything but wiping the damn system and starting over.

Surely there is an option other than wiping and starting over????
