Nevermind, figured it out! It's all about setting the right environment variables at the right time. I did the usual locale generation dance, uncommenting _both_ en_US.UTF-8 and nb_NO.UTF-8 in /etc/locale.gen, then I set the locale to nb_NO. After this I plugged `export LANG=en_US.UTF-8; export LC-PAPER=nb_NO.UTF-8` etc. into .zshrc, and now when I run `locale` it shows me the correct bunch of env vars!

Possibly stupid question: I want to set LANG to en_US but the locale to nb_NO.UTF-8. Whenever I try to pull off something like `export LANG=en_US` it pulls all the other locale-based environment variables with it. This is on , but I suppose it's a general penguin question....

If anybody has a link to a decent tutorial (I’d even shell out for a book), I’d be very happy
