I have Solaris 8 OS installed in French.

I have a computer with Solaris 8 OS and French language installed. This computer isn't in my office; to access it I use Exceed. I have to switch the installed language from fr_FR.UTF-8 to en_US.ISO8859-15

How can I do that?

P.S :Even when i try to edit /etc/default/init and reboot : nothing happens.


You need to have the en_GB locale installed. Otherwise, you might want to switch to the POSIX locale (a.k.a. C).

  • i edited my question : it's en_US and when i use the command locale -a i have in my list en_US.ISO8859-15. I don't speak about en_GB but en_US i don't know why they edited my question ... – Hohenheim Apr 4 '17 at 12:08
  • You wrote en_GB in your initial question, the various edits were adjusting the form, not the content. – jlliagre Apr 4 '17 at 16:11
  • Ok my bad then, have you an answer please ? – Hohenheim Apr 5 '17 at 7:13
  • @jiligre it's not the same question : here i'm connecting to a computer from distance that's why i asked a new question – Hohenheim Apr 5 '17 at 7:16
  • There is no evidence the problem you are describing here hasn't the same cause than the one in the other thread. First have the other issue fixed and ask for reopen should the solution doesn't apply here. – jlliagre Apr 5 '17 at 20:23
