Remove unwanted locales on Ubuntu / Debian

Sometimes you feel bothered by too many locales (pre)installed on your Debian system. If I run a server I typically want basic stuff on it, so for locales "en_US-UTF8" is enough.

Which locales are installed on my machine?
You can check which locales are generated and configured on your system using the locale command:
  • locale ... list the current locale configuration
  • locale -a ... lists all all locales that were generated on your system
  • locale -a -v ... list

Obviously you can only run one operating system at a time, but it is worth noting that the files on the Windows partition of your disk drive will be available to you from Ubuntu Linux regardless...
