Ubuntu Locales Warning Fix

For some reason I kept getting a “localed failed” warning which can be annoying, the solution was to manually generate the locales with sudo.

Example of a warning

Iwant@cheesecake:~$ perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:

LANGUAGE = (unset),

LC_ALL = (unset),

LANG = “en_US.UTF-8”

are supported and installed on your system.

perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale (“C”).

Solution to the problem

sudo locale-gen en_US

sudo locale-gen en_US.UTF-8
