            Bug ID: 366232
           Summary: Konsole sets $LANG to en_US.US-ASCII on startup and
                    tab creation
           Product: konsole
           Version: 16.04.3
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: dsgamecube at gmail.com

If Konsole isn't told specifically not to (via the environment variable list in
the profile settings area), it sets $LANG to en_US.US-ASCII when launched,
overriding the default locale. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit the current Konsole profile, setting at least one environment variable
and not setting $LANG. Apply your changes.
2. Open a new tab
3. Check $LANG

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
$LANG should be en_US.UTF-8, which is the only locale generated on the system
and the only one uncommented in /etc/locale.gen and specified in

An incorrect $LANG, especially if that locale doesn't exist on the system,
causes problems for mandb, among other things. I first noticed it because mandb
errored when installing packages via pacman.
