system ignore locale.conf

hi to everybody,

I have a very annoying problem:
setting up LANG via /etc/locale.conf (because I want system-wide configuration) is ignored
while setting up via ~/.bashrc works ...

this is what I get, without

export LANG=en_GB.UTF-8

in the ~/.bashrc, but with

LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"

in my /etc/locale.conf

[mattia@arch-dekstop ~]$ locale -a
C
POSIX
en_GB.utf8
[mattia@arch-dekstop ~]$ locale   
LANG=
LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=

instead with it in my ~/.bashrc, I get:

[mattia@arch-dekstop ~]$ locale -a
C
en_GB.utf8
POSIX
[mattia@arch-dekstop ~]$ locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

Re: system ignore locale.conf

I found two similar threads:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 1#p1252841
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1153155
Both blame incorrect sourcing /etc/profile

What's the output of 'localectl list-locales' and 'localectl status'?
