update-manager crashes when locales are not working
Binary package hint: update-manager
I had some problems with my gnome configuration (not related to update-manager), so I had to reset all gnome configuration by removing gnome directories. I did that using this command in my home directory (now I know it wasn't such a good idea.. :)):
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
After that everything works fine except Update Manager (update-manager package). If I try to run the program from a terminal I get the following error message:
(process:14671): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Traceback (most recent call last):
app = UpdateManager(
NameError: global name 'logging' is not defined
I tried reinstalling update-manager, but it didn't help.
I know, I'm the one to blame for deleting those directories. But still, a good program should expect missing configuration files and use default configuration in that case, that's why I'm reporting this bug.
