Based on this question considering Debian 9 (Stretch), maybe there are some updates available.
I want to use English language with German locales.
Is there an option available to select this configuration already during Debian installation (maybe within Advanced options -> Expert install)?
Up to now I would use the following approach:
- Choose language:
English - English
- Country, territory or area:
- Country to base default locale settings on:
English language with
German locales is not provided by default as you can also see in the next screenshot:
However, Ubuntu and its derivates provide such an option already during installation in the next step after selecting the desired
locale leads to:
user@pc:~$ locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE= LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_TIME=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_PAPER=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_NAME=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_ADDRESS=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_TELEPHONE=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_MEASUREMENT=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_IDENTIFICATION=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_ALL=
=> This is exactly what I want in Debian.
Is there any possibility to choose the desired configuration already during installation? Or is it only possible to adjust this after completing the whole installation progress?
