perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

If you have error like the following:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "en_US:en",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_MONETARY = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_ADDRESS = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_TELEPHONE = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_NAME = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_MEASUREMENT = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_IDENTIFICATION = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_NUMERIC = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_PAPER = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to a fallback locale ("en_US.UTF-8").
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "en_US:en",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_MONETARY = "ms_MY.UTF-8",

        LC_TELEPHONE = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_NAME = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_MEASUREMENT = "ms_MY.UTF-8",
        LC_IDENTIFICATION = "ms_MY.UTF-8",

The solution is to run this command:


sudo locale-gen en_US en_US.UTF-8 ms_MY ms_MY.UTF-8


The output :

Generating locales (this might take a while)...
  en_US.ISO-8859-1... done
  en_US.UTF-8... done
  ms_MY.ISO-8859-1... done
  ms_MY.UTF-8... done
Generation complete.



Run the command that produce the error. The error should not appear again.


That's all there is to it. Have fun!
