[Solved]Variable in /etc/environment

Postby rastoku » 2020-05-03 13:42

Hi there,
I have tried to change env. default variable LANG. I added LANG=C to /etc/environment file, nothing change default variable still works after restart. Than I added LANG DEFAULT=C OVERRIDE="" to /etc/security/pam_env.conf, but nothing change after restar. I had to use "update-locale LANG=C" and new value was accepted. Why system does nothing with changes in /etc/environment and /etc/security/pam_env.conf, I did what "man environment" recommend, but without success. Can anybody help what to do if I want to make changes with /etc/environment? I do not want to use .bashrc or .profile etc. files, I am interested in /etc/evironment only.
Thank you

Looks like /etc/default/locale overrides the setting in /etc/environment.

I export a few variables through /etc/environment and they work for me.
