I’m having trouble with Locale Settings in the Manjaro Settings Manager. That is: I see it completely empty:
However the system seems properly configured. This is the output of
System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
VC Keymap: it2
X11 Layout: it
X11 Model: pc105
This is the output of
Same as before: empty options.
maybe reboot and check again
- Go to the KDE System Settings
- Click Locale
- What does this show? (example from my system below)
If also empty, what are your regional settings?
Rebooted. Nothing changed.
Same thing. KDE locale settings are also empty.
Can you do me a favour and add an additional language in KDE’s language section? ( or will do)
(not promising anything, just trying to have KDE regenerate its own settings as manjaro-settings just takes its info from the DE).
Done that. As you can see it even switches language correctly, however locale settings are empty as before.
I think I discovered something. I searched the log and found these messages.
This is what happens when I try to open the Locale Settings in Manjaro Settings Manager:
05.10.2020 14:35:28:613 manjaro-settings-manager error: failed to open '/etc/locale.gen'
This is what happens when I try to open the locale settings in KDE:
05.10.2020 14:39:35:373 systemsettings5 error: failed to open '/etc/locale.gen'
These are the permission of
-rw------- 1 root root 10047 28 ago 14.05 /etc/locale.gen
It’s inaccessible to anyone except root. I think that’s the cause of the problems I’m having. Could you provide the correct permission settings?
sudo chmod 644 /etc/locale.gen solved the problem… It makes me wonder which other files got screwed up (maybe by a botched update?).
