4.2 Removing unused locale files: localepurge

Many Debian users use only one locale. A Brazilian Debian user, for example, usually uses the pt_BR locale all the time and doesn't care about the es one.

localepurge is a very useful tool for these users. You can free lots of space by having only the locales that you really use. Just apt-get install localepurge.

It is very easy to configure it, debconf questions guide the user in a step-by-step configuration. Be very careful on answering the first question though, wrong answers may remove all the locales files, even the ones you use. The only way to recover these files is reinstalling all the packages that provide them.
