Can select en_SE language despite the system not recognizing

Hello, I've been using KDE through KDE Neon for a while now, and I am having some trouble with localization.

I want to set the language overall to en_SE, as I am a native Swede with a relatively good grasp of English. And I can, but then the system throws error messages every now and again when I use the terminal, such as:
"locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory"

And despite downloading both the English and Swedish language packs, I still don't seem to have en_SE installed. When I delete the config file for localization, the system stops mentioning the issue, and any hindrances caused by borked localization are fixed.

Can I do anything about this, at all..?

Any help is very appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is a good solution, but it works for me (so far, at least). I've also selected en_SE via System Settings > Regional Settings > Format, but I've also added
Code: Select all
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
in ~/.bashrc. So far it works well. Plasma has the correct date format etc. and I can still use the terminal without locale throwing stuff in my face.
