NAME

       locale.conf - Configuration file for locale settings

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/locale.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The /etc/locale.conf file configures system-wide locale settings. It is
       read at early-boot by systemd(1).

       The basic file format of locale.conf is a newline-separated list of
       environment-like shell-compatible variable assignments. It is possible
       to source the configuration from shell scripts, however, beyond mere
       variable assignments, no shell features are supported, allowing
       applications to read the file without implementing a shell compatible
       execution engine.

       Note that the kernel command line options locale.LANG=,
       locale.LANGUAGE=, locale.LC_CTYPE=, locale.LC_NUMERIC=,
       locale.LC_TIME=, locale.LC_COLLATE=, locale.LC_MONETARY=,
       locale.LC_MESSAGES=, locale.LC_PAPER=, locale.LC_NAME=,
       locale.LC_ADDRESS=, locale.LC_TELEPHONE=, locale.LC_MEASUREMENT=,
       locale.LC_IDENTIFICATION= may be used to override the locale settings
       at boot.

       The locale settings configured in /etc/locale.conf are system-wide and
       are inherited by every service or user, unless overridden or unset by
       individual programs or individual users.

       Depending on the operating system, other configuration files might be
       checked for locale configuration as well, however only as fallback.

OPTIONS

       The following locale settings may be set using /etc/locale.conf: LANG=,
       LANGUAGE=, LC_CTYPE=, LC_NUMERIC=, LC_TIME=, LC_COLLATE=, LC_MONETARY=,
       LC_MESSAGES=, LC_PAPER=, LC_NAME=, LC_ADDRESS=, LC_TELEPHONE=,
       LC_MEASUREMENT=, LC_IDENTIFICATION=. Note that LC_ALL may not be
       configured in this file. For details about the meaning and semantics of
       these settings, refer to locale(7).

EXAMPLE

       Example 1. German locale with English messages

       /etc/locale.conf:

           LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
