ahem... i submitted to pastebin the output to grep -r LC_ * in my xbmc dir...
i personally don't find anything strange within... maybe it' s something which is NOT contained in it, could it be? i mean, could it be that somewhere we needed to configure with LC_ALL=C and we didn't? even if, would it be like that, as i guess who mantains the ppa has english as a default language, the ppa builds would have to be ok, and they aren't
am i just having a delirium?

Weird, not sure what to tell you since it works here and the locale is clearly getting set. Very strange indeed.

Hm, strange - on my dad's pc with ubuntu karmic I can reproduce the issue - the LC_NUMERIC fix doesn't seem to work here unless I export the environment var manually.

clumsy, what locale are you set to? i'd like to try to set my locale to that and try what happens, just to be sure
as i think i already said, i set the locale to EN_us and everything worked as expected, projectm on everything, but not with IT_it... what's the magic for you?

On both my machines LC_NUMERIC is set to "de_DE@euro".
On my archlinux box the mentioned fix works and projectM doesn't cause problems.
On my dad's ubuntu box, it doesn't work and I have to export LC_NUMERIC in /usr/bin/xbmc.
Don't ask me why
- succo - 2009-12-25 13:19
so, could it be possible to have the export LC_NUMERIC="C" line inserted in xbmc.sh.in by the devs, at least until this is investigated and, hopefully, solved
btw, happy xmas to the forum

I completely agree with succo: regarding the change to xbmc script and regarding the happy xmas!!

the strange issue with projectm turning blank seems to still exist in xbmc 10.1 (tested with ubuntu maverick on my ASRock Ion 330 HT using both confluence and transparency skins). The issue appeared yesterday for no apparent reason. Did I mention I didn't change anything on my xbmc box?
The other visualisations (opengl and wave form) work just fine. The debug log doesn't include anything suspicious.
I put export LC_NUMERIC=C at the start of /usr/bin/xbmc-standalone as a workaround.
