When I try to run the lollypop music player, I get the following error "Lollypop isn't designed to work without an unicode locale. Please fix your system". How to solve this?enter image description here

Edit: My etc/default/locale file:

  `LANG="en_IN"
   LANGUAGE="en_IN:en"`
  • Can you copy and paste or pastebin your etc/default /locale file? – bitseater Aug 16 '15 at 21:19

Try in terminal :

localectl set-locale "LANG=en_IN.utf8"

localectl set-locale "LANGUAGE=en_IN.utf8"

Check again your /etc/default/locale file matchs the changes. Check Lollypop runs without issues.

Also:

You can manually update your locales specs:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Notice your language format. It should be "en_IN.utf8" or "en_IN.UTF-8" (*)

Now, edit your enviroment file:

sudo scratch-text-editor /etc/environment

Add a new line with:

LANG="en_IN.UTF-8"
LANGUAGE="en_IN"

Replaced "en_IN.UTF-8" by "en_IN.utf8" according (*).

Save and close the file. Now edit your locale file:

sudo scratch-text-editor /etc/default/locale

Delete all the content and type:

LANG="en_IN.UTF-8"
LANGUAGE="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_ALL="en_IN.UTF-8"

Replaced "en_IN.UTF-8" by "en_IN.utf8" according (*). Save and close file.

At last, in terminal:

sudo update-locale 

To check that all is well, type in terminal

locale

This command should throw you the same content as we stuck in the last step. If so, reboot and try again with Lollypop.

  • No, its not working. Still getting the same error. – Ajith Aug 17 '15 at 13:09
