I cannot write the metadata to XMP, I got the following Exiftool warning:

Exiftool cannot write R1024493.DNG
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE=(unset)
LC_ALL= (unset)
LANG="en_Us"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
0 image files updated
1 image files unchanged

What can I do to solve this?

Thanks, Peter

    Hi,

    In a Bash shell try as root:
    #export LANG="en_US"

    Hi,
    It doesn't work at all.
    Is it possible that ExifTool needs to be changed to German as my System language is German?
