The en_DE locale doesn't exit in Debian, nor in upstream GNU libc. It's not going to happen, the en_DK locale exists, but it has been acknowledged that it was a mistake to create it. In that precise case, I am not even sure what en_DE means for LC_TIME. It is supposed to be the way to write the time in English in Germany? Should it be in the form day/month/year or month/day/year? 12h format or 24h format? The locale system has been defined so that you can choose the locale for a single category. That way you can choose if you want to display the time in English with the Australian or New-Zeland convention, while using a different convention for collation or monetary. > This breaks various things - here for example when I install > tex-common (via texlive package) and have LC_TIME set to en_DE.UTF-8: In general KDE should not offer to configure a locale that is not available on the system. That just creates issues like this one. In addition the list of available locales can evolve. I am therefore just tempted to reassign the bug to KDE.
