I have Kubuntu 16.10, Kernel Version: 4.8.0-42-generic

There is a problem with locales.


There ar missing some files or directory.

I have searched other posts (for examle: How do I fix my locale issue?)

I tried to aplly

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales "es_ES.UTF-8"

But i'm lost. My locale setting are Germany in regional and the detailed settings ar all in spanish.

Thanks in advance

  • Can you please run the command cat /etc/default/locale and let us know what it outputs by editing your question. Mar 25 '17 at 19:28
  • xokuzo@xokuzo-ntb:~$ cat /etc/default/locale # File generated by update-locale LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 xokuzo@xokuzo-ntb:~$

Try to generate the nds_DE.UTF-8 locale:

sudo locale-gen nds_DE


The problem proved to be that not all files belonging to the locales package were present, and reinstalling solved it:

sudo apt install --reinstall locales
