Description Lyubomir 2021-12-08 14:45:22 UTC
There is no en_DE.UTF8 in /etc/locale.gen

1. Set main Region to United Kingdom - British
2. Override Currency to Germany - English
3. Apply
4. Logout and Login back
5. test with some program - for example https://archlinux.org/packages/community/any/rebuild-detector/ (command checkrebuild -v)

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "en_GB.utf-8",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_MONETARY = "en_DE.UTF-8",
        LC_MEASUREMENT = "bg_BG.UTF-8",
        LC_NUMERIC = "bg_BG.UTF-8",
        LANG = "en_GB.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to a fallback locale ("en_GB.UTF-8").

No such error. It messes with possibly important output from other programs as it's printed three times.

This is a distro issue; we did our part on the Plasma side, but the distro didn't support it. :( This will be fixed with the new in-progress KCM though, as it will use distro-specific tools to generate locates as needed rather than assuming that the distro set things up correctly on its own.
