I installed scipy a few days ago on my laptop (with os linux debian), but
while importing the pylab module from the (installed) python-matplotlib I
got the following error:

Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Aug  8 2008, 09:22:44)
[GCC 4.3.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import scipy
>>> import numpy
>>> import pylab
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pylab.py", line 1, in <module>

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/rcsetup.py", line 18, in

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/colors.py", line 39, in
    import matplotlib.cbook as cbook
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/cbook.py", line 14, in
    preferredencoding = locale.getpreferredencoding()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/locale.py", line 514, in getpreferredencoding
    setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/locale.py", line 478, in setlocale
    return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

Could you please help me ?

Best regards,
