Kind of, it request the pinentry program to at least set LC_CTYPE and
LC_MESSAGES to the requested locale. Currently my pinentry-rofi ignore
these requests. I implemented them in case that was the issue, but still
the same issue. It was requesting to set en_US.UTF-8, e.g. my default

It does, however you gave me a point in the right direction. The issue
was that the systemd gpg-agent.service unit that launches gpg-agent,
does not set $GUIX_LOCPATH. Which was why rofi failed to set the locale.

To fix it all I needed to do was to append that to the service file.

I.e run.
  systemctl --user edit gpg-agent.service

Thanks for the help!
