Since I upgraded from potato to woody, I've started getting _lots_ of
these warnings in my ~/.gnome-errors file:
Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library
OK, it's just a warning, but it's new, and I just wonder
a) If I need to fix it to avoid _real_ problems later
b) If so, how do I fix it?
I wasn't aware that I changed anything locale-specific during the
upgrade, apart from the recommended 'apt-get install locales
util-linux', but I'm fairly sure I just accepted the defaults
everywhere, so that shouldn't have broken anything.
# and if you're still seeing problems
I tried that, but it had no effect (even tried rebooting!).
So I tried creating and logging in as a brand new user, and set up its
desktop exactly as my own - i.e. the same applets on the panel, same
startup programs, etc.
I logged out and back in again after each change, in an attempt to find
out which program(s) were generating the warning, but the warning never
showed up! So my guess was that something in gnome has changes WRT
locales, so that an old user from gnome 1.2.x produces these warnings
I renamed the ~/.gnome/ and ~/.gnome-desktop/ directories, logged out
ant logged in again, and the problem went away.
I'll geep the old directories for a week or so, in case anyone wants to
chase down the problem, but other than that, I consider this problem SOLVED!
