Permanently Set Environment Variable LANG
 
I'm trying to permanently set the environment variable LANG to en_US.iso88591 for all users.

I've added:

declare -x LANG="en_US.iso88591" to my /etc/profile and /etc/bashrc, but it will not work.

When I type env, I get:

[root@MISTRO aaronp1]# env

Is there a way to do this that I'm missing?

I've also tried using export, set commands and just LANG="en...."

Thanks,
Mistro116

See /etc/profile.d/lang.sh?
