I have 5 unused locales on my system. How can I remove them via command line? I have use
localepurge but it didn't work.
You can list locales with
Corresponding file size is given by
ls -lh /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive
To remove unused locales you can do
sudo locale-gen --purge it_IT.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8 && echo Success!
en_US.UTF-8 are the only two locales I want. The
&& echo "Success!" at end is useful because
locale-gen does not report errors if an unavailable or wrong locale is passed on command line.
