38In order to keep time properly, <path>/etc/localtime</path> must point to

47In order to keep time properly, you need to select your timezone so that your
48system knows where it is located. Look for your timezone in
49<path>/usr/share/zoneinfo</path>. You then set your timezone in
50<path>/etc/timezone</path>. Please avoid the
51<path>/usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/GMT*</path> timezones as their names do not
52indicate the expected zones. For instance, <path>GMT-8</path> is in fact GMT+8.

114<body>
115
116<p>
117A Locale is a set of information that most programs use for determining country
118and language specific settings. The locales and their data are part of the
119system library and can be found at <path>/usr/share/locale</path> on most
120systems. A locale name is generally named <c>ab_CD</c> where <c>ab</c> is your
121two (or three) letter language code (as specified in ISO-639) and <c>CD</c> is
122your two letter country code (as specified in ISO-3166). Variants are often
123appended to locale names, e.g. <c>en_GB.UTF-8</c> or <c>de_DE@euro</c>. Please
124explore <uri link="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locale">Wikipedia</uri> to read
125more about locales and related articles.

131<title>Environment variables for locales</title>
132<body>
95 133
96<p>
97The next step is to set the <c>LANG</c> shell variable, which
98is used by your shell and window manager (and some other
99applications). Valid values can be found in
100<path>/usr/share/locale</path> and generally take the form
101<c>ab_CD</c>, where <c>ab</c> is your two letter language code
102and <c>CD</c> is your two letter country code. The <c>_CD</c>
103is left off if your language is only (or primarily) spoken in
104one country. <c>LANG</c> can be set in
105<path>/etc/profile</path> if you want it to take effect
106system-wide, or in <path>~/.bashrc</path> as a user-specific
107setting.
108</p> 134<p>
109 135Locale settings are stored in environment variables. These are typically
110<pre caption="setting the POSIX locale"> 136set in the <path>/etc/env.d/02locale</path> (for system-wide
111export LANG="de_DE@euro" 137settings) and <path>~/.bashrc</path> (for user-specific settings) file.
138The variables controlling different aspects of locale settings
139are given in the table below. All of them
140take one name of a locale in <c>ab_CD</c> format given above.

116currency symbol (&#8364;) 207ordering of the alphabet, while some locales, most notably the Estonian one, use
208a different ordering. Therefore it's recommended to explicitly set LC_COLLATE to C
209when dealing with system-wide settings.
117</note> 210</note>
118 211
212<warn>
213Using LC_ALL is strongly discouraged as it can't be overridden later on. Please
214use it only when testing and <e>never</e> set it in a startup file.
215</warn>
216
217<p>
218Most typically users only set the LANG variable on the global basis. This
219example is for a unicode German locale:
220</p>
221
222<pre caption="Setting the default system locale in /etc/env.d/02locale">
223LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"
224LC_COLLATE="C"
225</pre>
226
227<note>
228Use <c>de_DE@euro</c> as your LANG if you want to use the Euro currency symbol
229(€) on non UTF-8 based locales.
230</note>
231
232<p>
233It's also possible, and pretty common especially in a more traditional UNIX
234environment, to leave the global settings unchanged, i.e. in the "<c>C</c>"
235locale. Users can still specify their preferred locale in their own shell RC
236file:
237</p>
238
239<pre caption="Setting the user locale in ~/.bashrc">
240export LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"
241export LC_COLLATE="C"
242</pre>
243
244<p>
245Another way of configuring system is to leave it in the default C locale, but
246enable UTF-8 character representation at the same time. This option is achieved
247using the following settings in <path>/etc/env.d/02locale</path>:
248</p>
249
250<pre caption="Using traditional C locale while specifying UTF-8">
251LC_CTYPE=de_DE.UTF-8
252</pre>
253
254<p>
255Using the above snippet, users will be able to see localized file names
256properly, while not being forced to your preferred language.
257</p>
258
259<p>
260For message based localization to work in programs that support it, you will
261probably need to have programs compiled with the <c>nls</c> (Native language
262support) USE flag set. Most of the programs using nls also need the gettext
263library to extract and use localized messages. Of course, Portage will
264automatically install it when needed.
265</p>
266
267<p>
268Once you have set the right locale, be sure to update your environment
269variables to make your system aware of the change:
270</p>
271
272<pre caption="Update the environment">
273<comment>(For system-wide default locale:)</comment>
274# <i>env-update &amp;&amp; source /etc/profile</i>
275
276<comment>(For user-specific locale:)</comment>
277$ <i>source ~/.bashrc</i>
278</pre>
279
280<p>
281After this, you will need to kill your X server by pressing
282<c>Ctrl-Alt-Backspace</c>, log out, then log in as user.
283</p>
284
285<p>
286Now, verify that the changes have taken effect:
287</p>
288
289<pre caption="Verify env changes">
290$ <i>locale</i>
291</pre>
292
293<p>
294There is also additional localisation variable called LINGUAS, which affects
295to localisation files that get installed in gettext-based programs, and decides
296used localisation for some specific software packages, such as
297<c>kde-base/kde-l10n</c> and <c>app-office/openoffice</c>. The variable
298takes in <e>space</e>-separated list of language codes, and suggested
299place to set it is <path>/etc/portage/make.conf</path>:
300</p>
301
302<pre caption="Setting LINGUAS in make.conf">
303# <i>nano -w /etc/portage/make.conf</i>
304<comment>(Add in the LINGUAS variable. For instance,

126If you use a locale that isn't available by default, you should use
127<c>localedef</c> to generate your locale. For instance:
128</p>
129
130<pre caption="Generating a locale using localedef">

133
134<p>
135After having generated the locale, you can export the LANG variable as you see
136fit.

330have specified in the <path>/etc/locale.gen</path> file.
171<p> 331</p>
172The next step is to re-compile <c>glibc</c>. Of course you can defer this until 332
173the next <c>glibc</c> upgrade is available. 333<note>
334<c>locale-gen</c> is available in <c>glibc-2.3.6-r4</c> and newer. If you have
335an older version of glibc, you should update it now.
336</note>
337
338<p>
339You can verify that your selected locales are available by running <c>locale

395If you have an international keyboard layout, you should set the option
396<c>XkbModel</c> to <c>pc102</c> or <c>pc105</c>, as this will allow mapping of the
397additional keys specific to your keyboard.

401Deadkeys allow you to press keys that will not show immediately but will be
