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.


Although not thoroughly tested, the technical steps are outlined in Locales in Ubuntu-based dCore.

  • Comment out the '~/.profile' line 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).
  • Import and load the locales-all package. All imported locales are listed in '/usr/lib/locale/', which provides the locale codes.


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.
