i don't know a lot about locales

i think "locale" does not set anything ... it just gives information
eg. locale -a tells you the locale names that are recognized as locales ... i suspect they are created by localedef

i think all you need to do is
export LANG=a-valid-locale-name

this will set LANG for all sub processes too

to set LANG for X you would need to
1) kill X
2) export LANG=valid-locale
3) restart X

or you can edit /etc/profile
/etc/profile is only executed by a login shell
so you would have to start a new login shell or restart the old shell as a login shell
it is not good enough to kill X and restart it

or you can edit /etc/profile and source it, like:
1) kill X
2) . /etc/profile
3) restart X

bash will execute /etc/profile if bash is run as sh
if bash is run as bash, it will execute .bash_profile

ash or bash-as-sh will execute the file in $ENV, if any, if it's not a login shell

if you start ash by typing ash
then run mp
the line-drawing chars are the same ... still 3's

as a workaround you can set in /root/.mprc

I have some little experience in adapting distributions like Slax, Knoppix and Kanotix to brazilian portuguese

so important as LANG=locale (ex. pt_BR)

is LANGUAGE=locale (for gtk apps like gimp)

and LC_ALL=locale

Sorry, broken english above Smile
