On the system described in the title, I am trying to change my locale to a UTF-8 one, in order to run the program Anki. However it won’t let me, the commands
locale-reconfigure locale-gen and any
locale-xxx/xxx-locale command doesn’t exist.
There was no
locale.gen so I created one, it looks like this:
en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8 LC_ALL="en_GB.UTF-8"
When I type in locale it says everything is
LC_ALL which are all left blank.
locale -a returns:
C C.UTF-8 POSIX
I’ve followed the guide on debian wiki and many other guides, all of which involve the use of
locale-gen or a similar command which I don’t have. I’ve also tried restarting with the new
locale.gen, but that also didn’t work.
Follow the prompts. You may need to reboot.

You should use the command
update-locale, and probably install a language package.
This link has detailed step by step instructions to set the locale in Crouton.
