Re: bsdtar: Failed to set default locale[SOLVED]

worked thanx to the link Allan.
I edited /etc/locale.gen
to enable
en_US.UTF8    UTF-8
en_US  ISO-8859-1
then I ran
sudo locale-gen

Thanx again

Re: bsdtar: Failed to set default locale[SOLVED]

Sorry to dig up such an ancient post but I'm having a nightmare here. I've set up my locale if i run locale-gen i get this


Generating locales...
  en_GB.UTF-8... done
  en_GB.ISO-8859-1... done
  en_US.UTF-8... done
  en_US.ISO-8859-1... done
Generation complete.

However whenever I try to install from the AUR i still get the  bsdtar: Failed to set default locale error. It's driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance

Craig

delboy83uk, please uncomment C locale, run locale-gen and try again. If you still have problems, please open a new thread.
