linux tips and tricks, notes and documentation

If you’re here, then you had problem like this:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = (unset),
LC_ALL = (unset),
LC_TIME = “hr_HR.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_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

user@computer:~$ /usr/bin/locale
/usr/bin/locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_NUMERIC=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_TIME=hr_HR.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_MONETARY=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_MESSAGES=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_PAPER=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_NAME=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_ADDRESS=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_TELEPHONE=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_MEASUREMENT=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_IDENTIFICATION=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_ALL=

Solution is quite simple:

sudo /usr/sbin/locale-gen hr_HR.UTF-8
sudo /usr/sbin/update-locale LANG=hr_HR.UTF-8

Recently I installed Ubuntu Karmic (9.10) and everything worked fine until I made first upgrade. since then I had no sound. Solution is quite simple.

Btw. I assume that U have mediubuntu repositories installed.

sudo aptitude install alsa-firmware alsa-firmware-loaders linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic linux-backports-modules-‘uname-r’

Last step was to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and /etc/modules.

After restart, everything should be working fine.
