    Default locale problems - might be Yast

    Despite en_GB being installed and selected in KDE

    either

    System settings -> Common appearance and behaviour (sic) -> locale -> System Country (United Kingdom)

    or

    System settings -> Common appearance and behaviour (sic) -> locale -> United Kingdom

    doesn't prevent "Favorites" on menu

    Code:
    gerry@linux-zd5t:~> locale
    locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
    locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
    locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
    LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
    LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
    LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
    LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
    LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
    LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
    LC_MESSAGES="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"
    LC_ALL=
    gerry@linux-zd5t:~>
    attempting to change in yast not only throws up

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
    what(): locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

    but requires me to rebuild the repository database

    Code:
    linux-zd5t:/home/gerry # rm -R /var/cache/zypp/*
    linux-zd5t:/home/gerry # zypper -v refresh -f
    I'm a bit lost and would be grateful for a few pointers

    I guess this is the same as this one: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...problem-2.html

    The solution is in the last few posts: an update of glibc should be rolled back.

    (BTW, I do not understand what the problem with Favorites on menu (which one) is).

    he wants it to have an unnecessary (in most worldwide communications in
    English) "u"...and, i bet s/he would also want the GIMP menu to have
    Colour instead of the 'correct' way, Color! :-)

    please see the smile and lets not go to war over it.

    Thank you - yes I had the 12.2 update repo enabled

    I rolled back glibc, glib-locale and glib-extra - which caused roll back candidate modules for YaST

    and now I get "Favourites" in my KDE menu (rather than "Favorites" answering your question) and YaST works - joy

    Did we ever declare peace after 1776?

    And yes, colour in the GIMP would be nice, after all one reason we use this stuff is that enables Xhosa or Quechua and other minority languages such as en_GB

    BTW I quite like litre, metre, centre, sulphur (I know, we lost that one in 1961...) however when are you going to spell it "aforism"?
