how to install a particular locale (et_EE.UTF8)


Dear debian people,

a couple of days ago I upgraded packages on my sarge system. Now my computer complains about et_EE.uft8 locale not found at startup. It seems that for some reason this locale was either not installed or created during the update. Is there any easy way to recreate/reinstall it?

best,

Ott

dpkg-reconfigure locales and selecting the ones you want to be generated should work.

Thanks!

Unfortunately dpkg-reconfigure is missing on my system (?!), but your answer pointed me the way. The keywords of what I did was /etc/locale.gen, locale-gen, reboot. It works!!!

I have to find what has happened with dpkg-reconfigure.

Best,

Ott

LOL, dpkg-reconfigure is certainly not missing in your system. You probably tried to run it as normal user (need to be root). Or maybe you have misconfigured DebConf -- if this is the case, do (as root) "dpkg-reconfigure debconf", select "Dialog" and priority level "Normal" (or "Low" if you're a control freak). That should make dpkg-reconfigure available also in your system.

I'd suggest that you install GkDebConf (apt-get install libgnome2-perl gkdebconf) to get a GUI frontend for dpkg-reconfigure. GkDebConf shows you what packages you can tweak with dpkg-reconfigure. (There's also an ncurses frontend, configure-debian.)
