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
- locale ... list the current locale configuration
- locale -a ... lists all all locales that were generated on your system
- locale -a -v ... list
