    unable to launch gnome-terminal when have  export LANG=C  in user's .profile

    user1574356

      solaris 11.4 beta1  x86

       

      installed from usb image

       

      solaris-desktop installed

       

      shell for my non-root account is bash

       

      I select 'Gnome Classic'  when logging in.

       

      if I put

         export LANG=C

      in my .profile in my home directory then I am unable to launch gnome-terminal either by

           - clicking on Applications / Favorites / Terminal

      or

           - right clicking on the background and selecting   Open Terminal

       

      If I logout, comment out the export line (via an ssh into the machine from another machine), and then log back in the Terminal comes up just fine with both methods.

       

      Why do I care?   I like the output of ls better when LANG=C than when LANG=en_US.UTF-8
