    You'll probably have to uncomment your locale in /etc/locale.gen and then run locale-gen as root. Take a look at the wiki for more help.

    The file should have a list of locales. In front of them should be a pound sign(#). You'll want to remove the pound sign from the one that applies to you. If you're in the US, it will be something like:

    en_US ISO-8869-1

    Once you do that, save and close the file and run locale-gen as root.
