I'm getting locale errors in connection with my C and man.
Can anybody help me figure them out?
1. Gdk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library
2. Locale: cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: no such file or directory
3. man: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_CTYPE and $LANG are correct.
What is the best way of avoid locale problems?
Any help appreciated. I did a search on "locale", but actually I didn't find any explanations on how to deal with locales, just suggestions on what to try. I got to wondering how many people really understand them.
I have also checked my two books on the subject (RUTE and Running Linux) and they are very patchy on the subject.
Thanks for your replies. Yes, I have a debian based distro, but as I mentioned I have been researching the locale issue. So, yes, I already was using dpkg-reconfigure locales.
In many ways, it's what got me into this mess in the first place. It definitely looks powerful, but it doesn't seem to tell C what's going on, or what has changed. I would use with caution if I was anybody else.
It's kanotix I'm having the trouble with, it's my second distro. At this rate I'm considering reinstalling, all because of the locale problem.
Yes, having a look at that ... my problem seems to reside in missing local files.
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_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory
Each locale needs certain files? I mean stuff I have to download? checking it out further, if nay body else has more suggestions, welcome!
