CCSM Locale Not Supported Error

My HTPC's compizconfig-settings-manager (ccsm) started failing to launch whenever I clicked on the link, so I tried to run it from the terminal to see what was up. When I did, I saw that it was coughing up this error:

(ccsm:8581): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Info: No sexy-python package found, don't worry it's optional.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 38, in 
    import ccm
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/__init__.py", line 1, in 
    from ccm.Conflicts import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/Conflicts.py", line 26, in 
    from ccm.Constants import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/Constants.py", line 72, in 
    locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/locale.py", line 476, in setlocale
    return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting
Turns out the fix is pretty simple. Just open up a terminal and type:


one after another.

Unfortunately, this fix doesn't seem to stick, so you have to do it every time you want to launch.
