Hi.

I'm using french locale where the decimal separator is ",".

In basic and scientific mode, I can use any of the , and . keys and I get a , displayed and the calculation works as expected.

However, on paper mode, entering . results in . being displayed and the decimal part being lost.

E.g.

12,3 + 12,3 = 24,6
12.3 + 12.3 = 24

This prevents us from using the . in the numpad, making paper mode almost unusable when dealing with decimal numbers.

    Thanks for your message. The problem here is, that the key you press does not give the expected character. While you expect the decimal point in your locale (e.g. ','), you get a dot '.'.

    This is a configuration issue on your system, see for example

    Fair enough. I don't have these menus (Debian/Xfce) but I suppose I could fix this one way or another.

    Apparently galculator manages to workaround this in Basic and Scientific modes. I thought it could do the same in Paper mode.

    Thank you for your answer, anyway.
