This is either a misconfiguration of your system, or else minicom has
messed up translation files.  If the former, then it is NOTABUG.  If
the latter, it is something that the minicom authors need to fix upstream.
Please contact the upstream maintainer directly.

The author of minicom has noticed about this problem.

I have my system configured correctly for minicom, I think since I only need to have LANG varaible configured correctly.

The problem is on the rpm and srpm, the translation files aren't copied to the system so minicom always run on english.

Let me check all the steps again... let me see...

Uh! minicom-2.00.0-4 at rpmfind (rawhide version), I will try with it but I think I will have the same problem.

Yes, translation files aren't copied on 2.00.0-4, but that translation files appears at the srpm package.
