Python bug during startup

Bug Description

I added the lucid repo to my Lubuntu install that I'm playing around with. Starting ubuntu-tweak from the terminal gives the following error:

jordanwb@lubuntu-desktop:~$ ubuntu-tweak
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ubuntu-tweak", line 26, in <module>
    from ubuntutweak.common.consts import DATA_DIR
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/ubuntutweak/common/", line 25, in <module>
    LANG = os.getenv('LANG').split('.')[0].lower().replace('_','-')
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'split'

Upgrading python related packages does not fix the error. I do not have this problem on my laptop running Ubuntu, so it may be something Lubuntu specific.

Maybe the Lubuntu doesn't set the LANG variable.

Try to set it before run Ubuntu Tweak

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ( or other)

Changed in ubuntu-tweak:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
assignee: nobody → TualatriX (tualatrix)
milestone: none → 0.5.2

Setting the LANG variable as suggested fixes the "problem".
