Glibc locale files

Locale files define the culural conventions of a langauge and region. The Glibc locale files are used on all GNU/Linux systems so are needed for software that will run on Linux.

Install X lib locales to get rid those messages::

I've found another solution, just install this dotpup: iso8859-1_XLC_LOCALE.pup(8.62 KB) and restart X, thats all, no additional steps, requirements, etc Smile . It's part of libX11-X11R7.1-1.0.1, you can compile it by yourself or download mine:
libX11-X11R7.1-1.0.1.tar.gz (1.37 MB) (build i486, prefix /usr/X11R7)

Yes, those .pets contains translations for your favorite apps. There are more in the GrafPup repository (not compatible at all; install them as unofficial PET package) and few more in this repo: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=12629 (to intall: open any archive with Xarchive, choose the one you want and extract to / )
