I’ve read numerous posts about people having problems with the default locale on a clean Digital Ocean droplet with Ubuntu. This manifests in getting errors like:
bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_US)
There is a quick fix, which is just running
But. Can’t this be fixed in the default Ubuntu image? Apparently en_US is installed as the default locale, but the locale files aren’t generated. Am I thinking too simple? Are there any reasons why this can’t be included in the default image?
