I'm having the same issue as described here. A workaround, that does not work, as I got to know here, since Ubuntu no longer uses locale.gen, has been suggested in the same thread.

Can someone advise?


Seems like there is a bug in the Slovak locale with respect to the LC_NUMERIC category. Try to add this line to your ~/.profile file:

export LC_NUMERIC=en_DK.UTF-8

(assuming that en_DK.utf8 is one of the available locales according to the locale -a command)

  • That didn't solve the problem unfortunately. Might I add, that I couldn't even find a file entitled .profile.

  • .profile is in /home, i.e. /home/[username]/.profile Jun 21 '13 at 13:58
  • Nope, double checked, no such file or directory.

  • Strange, since that file is always created when you create a new user account. Anyway, then I suggest that you simply create it manually, with the suggested line as its only contents. Jun 23 '13 at 17:10
  • Gunnar you the man! It works this way, thank you so much!
