#86 Decimal separator can't be entered anymore

gui (32)

When entering a floating point number with the PC keyboard the decimal separator can't be entered anymore over the numeric keypad with German locales.

The decimal separator for the German locale de_DE is ',' instead of '.'.

In galculator 2.0 the decimal separator is only accepted if either the '.' on the alphanumerical keypad is pressed or the corresponding button of the GUI is clicked. This is pretty inconvenient if the numerical keypad is used as is mostly the case. So galculator should use the locale's decimal separator.

    Hi. Greetings from Finland. We have the same issue here.

    The numerical pad comma is not accepted. Pressing it results in beep. However both dot and comma buttons work if entered from the alphanumeric keyboard. They both result in comma on the screen. This is good as currently Finnish accepts both dot and comma as decimal separators.

    I suggest that the numeric pad comma/dot button should be accepted regardless if it represents dot or comma.
