howto: mint 12 set locale to iso

Postby toastbrot » Mon May 14, 2012 9:58 am

i needed en_US.ISO-8859-1 but through usual debian/ubuntu "dpkg-reconfigure locales" i could not select anything at all. so here how it worked for me:
as root or else use sudo in front of each command

vi /etc/environment
and add those lines:

Code: Select all


vi /var/lib/locales/supported.d/en
and add this line:

Code: Select all

en_US.ISO-8859-1 ISO-8859-1


good luck...
