313If you use a locale that isn't available by default, you should use
314<c>localedef</c> to generate your locale. For instance:
315</p>
316
317<pre caption="Generating a locale using localedef">
318# <i>localedef -c -i en_US -f ISO-8859-15 en_US.ISO-8859-15</i>
319</pre>
320
321<p>
322After having generated the locale, you can export the LANG variable as you see
323fit.
324</p>
325
326<pre caption="Exporting the LANG variable">
327# <i>export LANG="en_US.ISO-8859-15"</i>
328</pre>

331Be sure to update the environment after the change:
332</p>

334<pre caption="Update the environment">
335# <i>env-update &amp;&amp; source /etc/profile</i>
336</pre>
337
338<p>
339After this, you will need to kill your X server by pressing
340<c>Ctrl-Alt-Backspace</c>, log out, then log in as user.
