    Hi all, 

    i just did a fresh install of airtime with Debian Jessie (8.0) .
    I got this message:

    "Check that the airtime-playout service is installed correctly in /etc/init, and ensure that it's running with 
    initctl list | grep airtime-playout
    If not, try 
    sudo service airtime-playout restart"

    and (of course) playout wont start.....

    Log file /var/log/airtime/pypo/notify.log is empty (true... the service wont start).

    So, after looking a bit around I discover this:

    /usr/bin/airtime-playout  -t    

    2018-06-29 08:03:17,267 [__main__] [INFO ]  New locale set to: C

        current_locale_encoding = locale.getlocale()[1].lower()
    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower'

    I look around airtime log files but nothing of interesting that can help.... same in syslog log.

    I think there's something of missing about pypo.... but what?

    .... FIXED

    dpkg-reconfigure locales

    On airtime I use ENGLISH (BRITAIN) so i select this "locales":


    reconfigure it and... It works....

    I hope this post will help someone :)
