Having trouble on properly setting the locale

Hi, I just reinstalled my slackware and I did the exact same thing I did before (edited and lang.csh) and rc.local (to set unicode)

Here is how each one of them look like:
export LANG=pt_BR
export LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8
setenv LANG pt_BR
setenv LANG pt_BR.UTF-8
However it is not working as it was before, on tty it is but not on X.
Example: (that is portuguese for "Command not found")

On tty and on my previous system it was working fine and display "comando não encontrado" (the correct way).

Any thoughts?

EDIT: My bad, guys. It was just on rxvt. I only realised it when I've tried xfce terminal. It is working fine
Damn I am such a noob

Preferably just write
export LANG=pt_BR.utf8
setenv LANG pt_BR.utf8
  • this is how it is expected to be written
  • in what you wrote only the second line export is considered anyway as it replaces the previous one
