[SOLVED] Locale issues

As the title says, I'm having locale issues.
It's preventing me from starting deluge as it gives me this error (at least, I think the error is caused by this):

ââ[andy @ vithon]-[01:16:25]
ââ[~]-[$]> deluge-gtk

(process:3098): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
    Using the fallback 'C' locale.
No handlers could be found for logger "deluge"
[ERROR   ] 13:16:28 daemon:107 Unable to initialize gettext/locale: unsupported locale setting
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid
zsh: abort      deluge-gtk

Here's the outputs of `locale -a` and `locale`:

ââ[andy @ vithon]-[01:14:25]
ââ[~]-[$]> locale -a
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory
C
POSIX
es_US
es_US.iso88591
es_US.utf8
ââ[andy @ vithon]-[01:14:27]
ââ[~]-[$]> locale
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
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="en_US.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=

And also, those a-like symbols in the front of my prompt shouldn't be there.
It's not an error in the prompt, it's that the symbols it's supposed to show aren't getting shown.

Re: [SOLVED] Locale issues

Never mind, I'm retarded.

In /etc/locale.gen, I had es_US.UTF-8 and es_US.iso88591 uncommented, but had en_US.UTF-8 and en_US.iso88591 commented.
Fixed that and now everything works as expected.

Re: [SOLVED] Locale issues

Just had the same problem, useful advice for newbies:

After you uncomment and save your /etc/locale.gen, don't forget to run (as root)

locale-gen

for the changes to take effect.
