After an update yesterday, every time I try to run gajim or cardapio, this is what I get:
(process:10142): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
I tried reinstalling cardapio and I'm still getting the problem. Since both are written in python I was guessing it must be a problem with python but I can't see which update could have caused this problem. I'm at a loss as to what to do, since nothing in my searching has proven useful (a bunch of unanswered forum posts for what seems to be a similar, but non-fatal error).
EDIT: After following this answer locale problem when running xterm in Ubuntu 10.04, I am still at a loss as to a fix. I can launch the applications with LANG=C, but, I don't quite get how to make that default (if this is needed).
In seeking a solution, I tried to run clicompanion, and this is what I get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/clicompanion", line 27, in <module>
idioma = get_language()
File "/usr/bin/clicompanion", line 18, in get_language
loc = locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "")
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/locale.py", line 513, in setlocale
return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting
