Set /etc/defaults/locale to:

LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.UTF-8 
LC_ALL="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8" 
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"

It's from here.

Can anyone help to apply it to my system?

Open a terminal and run:

sudo localectl set-locale LANG=en_GB.utf8

Or if you want to do it manually open that file using an editor like nano:

sudo nano /etc/default/locale

paste that lines into this file then use Ctrl+O to save the file, then Ctrl+X to exit.

If you prefer graphical tools then run:

gksudo gedit /etc/default/locale

Paste the lines and save the file.

  • thanks , i did it by nano as you said in the second way , but the main problem didn't solved it still give me this error when i try to install the software" RuntimeError: locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid" – Mohamed Samir Jun 18 '17 at 16:34
