Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I got my laptop, linux was already installed. It was all installed in French. My problem is that I was to change locale or just add to them. I need to have eng_us
When I run some commands i get:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = "en_US:en",
LC_ALL = (unset),
LC_PAPER = "fr_BE",
LC_ADDRESS = "fr_BE",
LC_MONETARY = "fr_BE",
LC_SOURCED = "1",
LC_NUMERIC = "fr_BE",
LC_TELEPHONE = "fr_BE",
LC_MESSAGES = "en_US",
LC_COLLATE = "en_US",
LC_IDENTIFICATION = "fr_BE",
LC_MEASUREMENT = "fr_BE",
LC_CTYPE = "en_US",
LC_TIME = "en_US",
LC_NAME = "fr_BE",
LANG = "en_US"
are supported and installed on your system.
I checked for the locale installed and I have:
Also, Whenever I open a console I get:
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
Just so you know, I have mandrake 10.1 installed kde3.2.
I dont know how to change locale or add to it. It should be possible. If so, would you let me know how.
Sorry but where am I supposed to do this? Where is the setlocale supposed to be?
Just to make sure what you are telling me to do is what I need. In a simpler way, I need en_US , en_US.UTF8 to be included in locale. When I do locale -a, the encodings that show are all for French.
