Package: locales Version: 2.28-10 Severity: minor Tags: l10n If installing Debian choosing Norwegian Bokmål as your system language the other Scandinavian langiages are defined as fallback languages if translations are missing: LANGUAGE="nb_NO:nb:no_NO:no:nn_NO:nn:da:sv:en"
Allthough very similar the other scandinavian languages are not suited as fallbacks for technical texts. I usually have to prepend LANG=C to whichever command I am running in these cases in order to understand the exact details of the messages. I suggest removing "da" and "sv" from the above string. If the same is the case for Norwegian Nynorsk, Swedish and Danish I'd suggest doing the same for those languages as well. -- System Information: Debian Release: 10.1 APT prefers stable-updates APT policy: (500, 'stable-updates'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Kernel: Linux 4.19.0-6-amd64 (SMP w/4 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=nb_NO.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=nb_NO.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8), LANGUAGE=nb_NO:nb:no_NO:no:nn_NO:nn:da:sv:en (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /usr/bin/dash Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system) LSM: AppArmor: enabled Versions of packages locales depends on: ii debconf [debconf-2.0] 1.5.71 ii libc-bin 2.28-10 ii libc-l10n 2.28-10 locales recommends no packages. locales suggests no packages. -- debconf information: locales/default_environment_locale: None locales/locales_to_be_generated:
