I'm running ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Dotnet20 has been installed using winetricks. When I attempt to run a .net application, the application throws a System.ArgumentException, stating the error message:

System.ArgumentException: Culture name 'ga-ie' is not supported.

The application has no reason to load ga-ie as far as I know; Ubuntu is running in American English locale, but I'm not sure how to check this as I am a beginner.

This may not be an answer to your question, but have you looked at the mono project ? I've decided to not run programs through Wine, so I can't really help you there. You could try look for locale settings in Wine, though. Myself, I run a virtual machine in Ubuntu with windows installed, through VMplayer. No wine needed.

Sorry if I went really off-topic with regards to your question.
