Setting up a UTF-8 Locale

You may need a UTF-8 locale to run some Ruby applications. For example we’ve found that Ruby Spec needs such a locale.

RedHat-based: Fedora, Oracle Linux, etc #

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Debian-based: Ubuntu, etc #

sudo apt-get install -y locales
sudo locale-gen en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
