Locales are customizations of the operating system to a region and language, as in selecting date format, character set, alphabetical collating order, etc; see locale(1). You cannot use a locale that is not supported by your system, no matter what you put in the variables. The default locale is 'C', which means not translation, no extended character set, etc. Short anwser: your LANG environment variable is probably messed up. Try starting your applications from a terminal like so LANG=C gnumeric (or whatever) and see if that makes a difference. - -- Henry House The attached file is a digital signature.
