Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

i don't want any of the linguas shown
how do i set only en_US only ?

Code:
# /etc/locale.gen: list all of the locales you want to have on your system
#
# The format of each line:
# <locale> <charmap>
#
# Where <locale> is a locale located in /usr/share/i18n/locales/ and
# where <charmap> is a charmap located in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps/.
#
# All blank lines and lines starting with # are ignored.
#
# For the default list of supported combinations, see the file:
# /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED
#
# Whenever glibc is emerged, the locales listed here will be automatically
# rebuilt for you.  After updating this file, you can simply run `locale-gen`
# yourself instead of re-emerging glibc.

en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8


this is my locale.gen

Did you set LINGUAS in make.conf? If so, what is the output of
Code:
$ portageq envvar LINGUAS
?

I dunno. Awhile ago, LINGUAS="en" was commented out in my make.confs. I forget now and why I didn't document that decision. In part because I got tired of sifting through many ebuilds messages complaining about no such LINGUAS 'en' being available.

This topic and its confusion and ambiguity came up in the past. My experience has been the same as the OP in that past post.

Instead I just have
Code:
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="C"

In my /etc/env.d/02locale

I believe in the case of chromium, all the languages are bundled with by default (and therefore the USE variables forced on by default). The unmatched/unwanted languages are/were stripped out via a specialized eclass function just for this purpose (re: _chromium_set_linguas_IUSE()), presuming that is still used that unbundles whatever doesn't match your LINGUAS setting.

Doing a quick # LINGUAS="en" emerge -pv chromium confirm test does strip out the extra languages, but you may run into the annoyances with other packages with warning messages.

I don't know if in your case it would help, but LINGUAS can have as many values as you wish, which in case you are proficient with more than one language can help mitigate that problem.

I agree however that the behavior of the whole LINGUAS thing is a bit annoying at times. It should just silently default to a sane default if no matching LINGUAS is available for that package.

Code:

# grep LINGUAS /etc/portage/make.conf
LINGUAS="en en_GB en_US es es_ES"

You could check by running
Code:
$ equery h linguas_en_GB
$ equery h linguas_en_US
$ equery h linguas_en
$ equery h linguas_en_ZA
Thunderbird and Firefox are not having linguas_en but only linguas_en_GB. Nevertheless LINGUAS="en" in make.conf is enough for them unless you definitely want en_GB.

Chromium is the development open source branch.

Chrome is the binary-distributed package, as Google releases it, and might include privative software embedded. Did you wander sometime why you don't need the flash plugin or the pdf plugin to see those contents in Chrome? That's why.

it merged with the above message. i was going for this browser for the built n flash player as i get shockwave crashes in browsers..

the change in make.conf may bring lot of reinstalls perhaps.
i will check todays update.

thanks for all replies and pointers.

@OP, Whoops. Sorry my mistake (typo) regarding the google-chrome vs chromium confusion. i92guboj summed up the differences for you. They are essentially the same browser, without the Google specific flourishes in Chromium.

@ i92guboj: you can also emerge chromium (the source code ebuild) and additionally install www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins in order to get flash support.

@i92guboj
and padoor: as for other packages where a binary equivalent exists (libreoffice, libreoffice-bin, firefox, firefox-bin ...), when you install chromium instead of google-chrome you'll have more choice (USE-flags), but compiling is not a snap. Calculate 3 hours on a quad-core @ 3 GHz, 10 hours on a dual core @ 1,9 GHz :-).

@padoor: locale.gen & Co. are for the localization of your shell; the LINGUAS variable determines which additional localization packages will be pulled in or activated when you install a certain application. E.g. localized help for kde or libreoffice, localized man-pages, etc. You usually don't need to specify linguas_en, because it's the default (US-english), but there are exceptions (e.g. texlive).

Further, you can specify LINGUAS in /etc/portage/make.conf as pointed out by charles17, or instead on a per package basis in /etc/portage/package.use/my_package, e.g.:
Code:
app-text/texlive-2014 linguas_en linguas_en_GB linguas_de linguas_fa linguas_sa_IN
because I want to typeset sanskrit and farsi poems along with a german translation (or whatever a philologist would like to do), but I do not want to read my man-pages in sanskrit or farsi or even german :-)).
As to chromium, the additional linguas variables add spell checking and possibly hyphenation for typing text in web forms, but don't affect desktop integration (menus etc.).

@padoor:

Quote:
the change in make.conf may bring lot of reinstalls perhaps

After adding a LINGUAS variable into /etc/portage/make.conf, I'd emerge -uDNpv world and see what would happen. However, this is exactly the reason why you would put your linguas into a /etc/portage/package.use file.

@padoor again:
recommended reading: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Localization/HOWTO#LINGUAS

regards,
cjubon
