the monetary decimal point is wrong in gnucash

Asked by Madeira on 2007-03-07

I'm using pt_PT.UTF-8 locale
The decimal point in gnucash is $ instead of .
Example:
5$10 €
Expected:
5.10 €
or
EUR 5.10

My guess is this is some kind of locale legacy problem, because the $ was the portuguese currency decimal point before the euro.

You're right this is a known Gnucash bug. It should eventually receive some attention.

This Gnucash bug is already fixed since it is _not_ a Gnucash one :-)
Indeed, according to Gnucash developpers, it is a bug in the locale.

Can you help with this problem?
