I found the problem. I need to relog after setting the language variables. But what I'm wondering is: How would I relog inside a vagrant script? Is this even possible?
I've read about this problem already on other threads
but it didn't help me really. The accepted answer asked if the line with the desired language is uncommented in
/etc/locale.gen which it is in my case, but it still doesn't work.
What I'm trying to achieve
I'm building a Vagrant box with
debian/jessie64 which should automatically set the language variables to German. I have
locale.gen file in my vagrant folder which should replace the default one in
/etc/locale.gen with this command
sudo cp /var/www/project/www/vagrant_ressources/locale.gen /etc/
These are the contents of
de_DE ISO-8859-1 de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8 de_DE@euro ISO-8859-15 en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
Afterwards I'm regenerating the locals with
sudo locale-gen. This is the output
Generating locales (this might take a while)... de_DE.ISO-8859-1... done de_DE.UTF-8... done de_DE.ISO-8859-15@euro... done Generation complete.
Now I'm trying to install a package
sudo apt-get install -y php7.0-fpm and am getting the warning
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_CTYPE = "de_DE.UTF-8", LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C"). 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
de_DE.UTF-8 come up there? I also want to do this without using
dpkg-reconfigure because this is a script which should do everything without user input. And
dpkg-reconfigure simply creates the
locale.gen file, nothing more, right?
Also, when using
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales the entries from my own
locale.gen file are already selected. So it seems like part of this works.
When typing in
locale -a these are the results
C C.UTF-8 de_DE de_DE@euro de_DE.iso88591 de_DE.iso885915@euro de_DE.utf8 deutsch german POSIX
