Help: Locale "C" not understood by x11-emacs & netscape3.0

Post by Patrick J. McGuinne » Sat, 01 Feb 1997 04:00:00

I have the following setup: linux 1.2.13 kernel, slackware 3.0
with ELF ... Setup one year ago, with a move to ELF in April.

For a while now, I've been getting the following problem when I attempt to
run emacs (emacs-19.29-with-X11):

Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
Warning: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
Warning: X locale modifiers not supported, using default
X protocol error: BadAtom on protocol request 18

... and it dies.

The library version I use in /usr/X11/lib is

Coincidentially, netscape3.01 also dies, saying:
        "locale 'C' not supported"
and then telling me I need a correct  $NLSPATH and nls dir.
*YET*, I do have such a directory, /usr/X386/lib/X11/nls,
which contains a file "C" and a file nls.dir.  
I put this dricetory there for netscape2.0, which by the way DOES work,
with no complpaints (from either side :-) ).

Other than emacs and netscape3.0, I've had no such similar problem.
Are they related?  Is there a library incompatibility issue?
libX11? or libc? - my libraries are date Dec 1995 or older;
e.g. I have, from Dec 13 1995.



PS. Gratuitous added question ...
I have a HP Deskjet. I've hobbled together a manual process for printing
PostScript on it. Where can I find a lpr filter program to do this
automatically? If the answer is "RTFM", please point me in the right
direction. I've been looking and I can't seem to find that info.


1. current locale is not supported in X11, locale is set to CX


   A bit of a newbie question I guess but I couldn't find anything
related in the mail achives. I've just installed the
/usr/ports/java/linux-sun-jdk14 port which seemed to go
smoothly but when I try to run a simple Java program I get
this error message (below).

current locale is not supported in X11, locale is set to CX locale modifiers
are not supported, using defaultException in thread "main"
        at javax.swing.ImageIcon.<init>(
        at StadiumDesigner.createImageIcon(
        at StadiumDesigner.addToggleButtons(
        at StadiumDesigner.init(
        at StadiumDesigner.main(

     Everything else seems to work fine with X and I'm not sure how
(or what) to fix. Any help is appreciated.
