[SOLVED] How to add region in Gnome?

Postby niclasc » 2013-06-06 07:36

I'd like to add Sweden as a region under "Region and Language". Can anyone please explain how to do that. All I see now under region is United Kingdom

By default, GNOME only lets you to put your region according to your language. For example, for the language ca_ES (catalan of Spain) it only lets you to select Spain as a region, although Catalan is also spoken in France and Italy:

A similar thing happens if you have en_GB as a language, as you might have. Try enabling a locale from Sweden (one of this list):
Code: Select all
# sv_SE ISO-8859-1
# sv_SE.ISO-8859-15 ISO-8859-15
# sv_SE.UTF-8 UTF-8

You can do that by editing /etc/locale.gen and uncommenting one of those lines. After that, run locale-gen as root:
Code: Select all
someone@somewhere:/somefolder# locale-gen


Now try to set your region to "Sweden". Hope it works!
