Bug Description

i can set the language just fine in the settings on ubuntu touch, but date format or currency are not updated along with the language.

below is my current ~/.pam_environment

phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cat .pam_environment
LANGUAGE=de:en
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8
LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8
LC_PAPER=en_US.UTF-8
LC_NAME=en_US.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=en_US.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=en_US.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_US.UTF-8
PAPERSIZE=letter
phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LanguageAndText#phone-language>: "Changing the display language should also change all other locale settings that are not currently set to custom values."

i assume just setting LC_ALL alongside with LANGUAGE and LANG will help here

Thanks ogra ... mpt, is the language selector supposed to change those settings as well? I don't seem to find that specified in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LanguageAndText#phone-language

  [ Ken VanDine ]
  * cellular: Updated the order of the items to match the latest design
    and uncommited the technology preference item but hid it with
    showAllUI.
  * Added QML_SOURCES to the target so they show up in QtC .

  [ Sebastien Bacher ]
  * Ignore some of the autogenerated files, those changed with cmake.
  * battery: color the charge graph.

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * Use UriHandler to handle requests to switch to new pages in an
    existing instance.
  * [background] Correctly set the background in accountsservice. Make
    it update in the UI. Fix the "same/different" toggle. Update the
    reset button to reset the greeter background too, and to set the
    toggle back to "same". (LP: #1237860)
  * Install new translations missed out of the cmake port.
  * Fix dh_shlibdeps warnings. Don't define prototype for functions that
    aren't implemented. Link the language C++ plugin with gio.
  * [wifi] Don't override SDK behaviour—improve look & feel to be more
    in line with the rest of the interface.
  * Unhide greeter background UI now that it works.
  * Do the symlinking of the accountsservice interface in the upstream
    buildsystem, not the packaging.
  * Parse the desktop file (With GDesktopAppInfo) to get the display
    name and icon of click packages to display in About→Storage.
  * [time-date] Use libtimezonemap's new properties to show state and
    full country name in timezone manual selection.

  [ Jussi Pakkanen ]
  * Switch to CMake.

  [ William Hua ]
  * Use m_ convention for naming member variables.
  * Update formats locale too. (LP: #1236772). (LP: #1236772)
  * Show all locales in the display language selector.
  * Re-enable some Maliit settings.
