Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I run the date command in the terminal I get a very strange result, I get plus characters all over the results, see below. Can anyone help me to understand why this is happening?

$ apt-get install language-pack-sv-base -y 
$ LC_TIME=sv_SE.UTF-8 date

$ LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8 date
ons 27 mar+ 2013 12.17.+00 CET

$ LANG=C date
Wed Mar 27 12:17:08 CET 2013

I've had this problem for a while now on Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
