Thanks for your reply, I read it already, and ended my self reading the mklocale manuals

The problem i have now is where to find a suitable es_MX.UTF-8.src file, I looked here:


to no avail.

Do you know or some one know here in the list where i can find a src file for es_MX.UTF-8 ?

Thanks in advance.
