How do I fix my locale issue?


I had this same issue as well, and also tried everything without any effects.

My local was at first not UTF-8, but ISO. I changed that to (both Dutch and English) ISO, but as said without any effect.
I once was able to start gnome-terminal while I had su(do-ed) to root and then it came to me that my user locale in gnome was different from my root locale.
So I changed my user settings in the gnome configuration panel from Dutch to English, restarted gnome as requested, and then tried to start gnome-terminal et voila! It was working. Then I changed my user configuration back to Dutch and now gnome-terminal would start again without any problems.

It looks to me like the first-time you start gnome-terminal, it should be done with the user-settings in English (or the same as your root locale?).

Maybe someone can confirm that the gnome-language-settings has something to do with the error messages, as described by others as well.

Current accepted answer is not sufficient in the troubleshoot strategy because you can have an human error. You setup your system to en_US but you have en_GB enabled in/etc/locale.gen like I had in the thread here for Raspberry Pi 3b. You should have all your used locales enabled in /etc/locale.gen.

I had en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8 only enabled in /etc/locale.gen. I should have there only enabled en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 because of other commands run for it. So I commended GB and uncommented US, and everything work now

masi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo vim /etc/locale.gen masi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo locale-gen Generating locales (this might take a while)... en_US.UTF-8... done Generation complete. masi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo a2enmod rewrite && a2enmod headers && a2enmod ssl Module rewrite already enabled Module headers already enabled Considering dependency setenvif for ssl: Module setenvif already enabled Considering dependency mime for ssl: Module mime already enabled Considering dependency...

I realize this is an old question, but it's also pretty general without any details about the specific hardware involved. That said, you can't file a bug or go about fixing things until you figure out some more details.

I thought I'd take a stab at this since I faced the issue and recovered from it pretty recently. I'll probably run through here again later and throw in some more info and simplify the steps, but the answer list is already pretty big, so I'll go easy on the screenshots.

Recovery mode is your friend, but you don't always need a single-user root session to solve things. In fact, you might just be able to do a normal console login by selecting "resume" without considering any of the other options on the recovery menu. The nice thing about a normal console session over the single-user root mode is that you can get multiple terminals running at once--Switch between them or open up new ones with Alt+F1, Alt+F2, etc. There's a good chance that it's a video...

I generally feel nothing but antipathy toward Internet Explorer so when it freezes and displays that stupid little “Internet Explorer has stopped working” error it vexes me like nothing else. I find the “Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…” sub-message obnoxious and sardonic.


Because we all know Windows isn’t checking for anything; that’s just a message Microsoft’s coders threw in to make you think Windows is actually doing something for you. In most cases, it’s just a waste of time. I usually impetuously click Cancel before Microsoft devises it’s false plan of redemption.

If your browser is feeling indolent but doesn’t completely freeze up, you might want to see the article I wrote about speeding up Internet Explorer; however, if IE keeps crashing on you with these silly stopped working messages then read on for the fix.


The number one thing to do is stay cool, stay composed, maintain equanimity. Don’t throw...

Let’s quote and resolve things one by one.

“Honestly Linux users waste so much time fucking with the OS and all of its never ending bugs.”

Windows has bugs too. Open Firefox on Ubuntu 14.04 and find a bug. Follow the same steps with the same bug on Windows. Try this with any software you find. Besides, there is NOTHING wrong with the OS, there are just bugs with the software INSTALLED on the OS. If it is too buggy for you, don’t use it, but don’t moan about it either.

“That is why the business world will never switch to linux on the desktop.”

1. They may of tried but their computers won’t support it.
2. They may think Linux costs money.
3. They may not want their IT professionals to reinstall all the software. (most likely)
4. They may of never heard of Linux.

“Plus there is not very much quality software for linux.”
Prove it. BTW, The Ubuntu Software Centre has over 3 thousand programs. If you need more, see...

‘m a new Apple OS X Mabbook user. I am getting an error which read as follows when I connect to any remote Linux/Unix/BSD server or machine through OS X ssh Terminal app:

Last login: Wed Mar 26 08:45:36 2014 from
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8): No such file or directory

How do I fix this error?

This warning or error is part of both OpenSSH server and OS X ssh terminal client issue. It can be fixed using various methods.

Understanding LC_* environment variables

Type the following command on remote server to display of all locales supported by Glibc:

$ locale -a

Next, type the following command to display settings on your local system (OSX/Unix/Linux based desktop):

Sample outputs:


The above commands display the country and language names, the character encoding used by the locale. Your local ssh client is sending your LC_*...
