I have a freshly installed Ubuntu 12.04
I need to install telugu language (I have been using it successfully in my earlier ubuntu 11.04).
But the Language support is saying:
Software database is brocken- you can not add or delete any package...
I looked up in the net, updated and upgraded the system as suggested, to no avail.
It looked like the problem is with the Default locale.
I tried this too:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales [sudo] password for narayana: Generating locales... en_AG.UTF-8... up-to-date en_AU.UTF-8... up-to-date en_BW.UTF-8... up-to-date en_CA.UTF-8... up-to-date en_DK.UTF-8... up-to-date en_GB.UTF-8... up-to-date en_HK.UTF-8... up-to-date en_IE.UTF-8... up-to-date en_IN.UTF-8... up-to-date en_NG.UTF-8... up-to-date en_NZ.UTF-8... up-to-date en_PH.UTF-8... up-to-date en_SG.UTF-8... up-to-date en_US.UTF-8... up-to-date en_ZA.UTF-8... up-to-date en_ZM.UTF-8... up-to-date en_ZW.UTF-8... up-to-date Generation complete. narayana@Subhan:~$ sudo apt-get --reinstall install language-pack-te Reading package lists...
