Hi, I’ve recently installed Antergos and I’m loving it, never used an archlinux distro before, but, for some reason the installer didn’t show the screen for selecting format (for dates, numbers, clock) , so i just clicked next, but now my region is set to australia, and everytime I want to change it when I search for formats I can’t find any, this happens with language also, anyone can help?
Can't change format & language
While the Cnchi issue is heavily disscused in the forum, I couldn’t find a solution to my problem (change the format ad language). However, I did some research (and, I should’ve done before) and found that you need to generate a locale.gen with the format and language you need.
For doing so, read this article in the Archlinux Wiki. Thanks
…but, for some reason the installer didn’t show the screen for selecting format (for dates, numbers, clock) , so i just clicked next,…
You was referring to Cnchi (the installer) here, wasn’t you? The suggested thread describes how to avoid this exact inconvenience. Nothing else. It’s not about setting locale in Arch.
Thank you for suggested ArchWiki article. These are my current locales; depending on my geographical location I use one or another. And some time a mix of them.
$ locale -a C en_IE.utf8 en_US.utf8 fi_FI.utf8 it_IT.utf8 ru_RU.utf8 POSIX $
Maybe I wasn’t clear enough, but I asked how to add more formats and languages to the Settings app in antergos (or another archlinux based distro) , which can be done following the instructions in the page I posted above, this may be useful for newbies that want to change their format region from the English Australia (that is selected by default in cnchi) to the one they need without having to reinstall and/or fix the cnchi issue. Again, sorry, as English is not my native language.
