Locales in Debian-based dCore

Debian repositories contain an all inclusive locales-all package. The package is large (~25 MB) and can be trimmed to create a mylocale extension.

Installation

The following approach has not been thoroughly tested but should work in principle. The technical steps are explained in more detail in the outline about locales in ub-Dcore.

  1. Comment out the line in '~/.profile' that hard-codes the LANG to β€œen_US.UTF-8” and have it set through the boot-code lang (cf. below for the locale-codes).
  2. Import and load the locales-all package. All imported locales are available under '/usr/lib/locale/'; its listing provides the locale-codes.

Mylocale

One may stick with the locale extension or – optionally – continue to put the selected locales into an extension.

  1. Copy the desired locales aside and remove the locales-all extension.
  2. Create an extension for the selected locales.
