• \[Solved\]add german formats to gnome


    hi all,

    I would like to add German formats (instead of US) to gnome-shell -> Settings -> Region & Language. I suppose I need to install some german / DE locale package but so far was not able to find anything familiar with pacmanxg.

    That should be straight forward, no? Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks & Cheers!

  • Never mind!

    edit /etc/locale.gen and un-comment the locales one needs, e.g.

    \#de\_CH ISO-8859-1   
    de\_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8   
    de\_DE ISO-8859-1   
    de\[email protected] ISO-8859-15   
    \#de\_LU.UTF-8 UTF-8   
    
    

    generate the locales:

    \> sudo locale-gen  
    
    

    Done!
