bash shell startup files
 
Hello, I have questions about configuration of the bash shell, i want a very special setup,
i want to have everything in english language. but I live in a country which locale is not english at all. and I don't want messages of the shell, date, etc to appear in something else than english. on the other hand, i need to have a different keyboard layout than the qwerty english one. i need to have an azerty belgian
so how can i configure the bash shell startup files to fusion the two world, everything in english, but the rest suitable to belgium. page size, etc
htank you

Regarding "page size", I had to create file /etc/papersize containing one line, "letter" to print on US letter paper; by default it (Ubuntu 6.06.1 dapper) would assume A4. You will want A4.

I'm aware this has nothing to do with bash startup files (in ~/.bash_profile, you may want to set some of the LC_* variables and/or LANG. :study: man bash).

Maybe try man localedef and man locale.
