Description Christian Rose 2002-10-10 00:21:52 UTC
Tested with RHL 8.0 and using sv_SE.UTF-8.

redhat-config-xfree86 uses the wrong decimal character (point instead of comma)
in the monitor frequencies section, both in input and display (see screenshot).
This locale's decimal character is comma.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-10 09:14:50 UTC
This is an unfortunate problem with python. The python environment fails if you
change the numeric locale, so pygtk2 automatically sets it to C.

Comment 3 Christian Rose 2002-10-10 09:46:25 UTC
Should I file a bug report against python?

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-10 09:59:28 UTC
pygtk does:

    /* set the LC_NUMERIC locale back to "C", as Python requires that
     * it be set that way. */
    setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "C");

I'm not sure this can be fixed, but maybe it can.

Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-10 10:00:38 UTC
Easiest would be to just ask jamesh if this is fixable.
