R locale error , super weird.

Error :
Warning message:
In strsplit(txt, “—“) : input string 1 is invalid in this locale

I fixed this one on my own. Here’s the solution. My locale was set to 1 “de_DE.UTF-8/de_DE.UTF-8/C/C/de_DE.UTF-8/de_DE.UTF-8”

which I checked with


According to the bioconductor mailinglist, locale should be set to C. This is what I did


Et voilà the faceting worked just like it used to. I have no clue how the locale changed, but that’s how you can change it whenever this problem occurs.

HTH someone else too.
