Why is it not possible to enter float value in wxPropView on a Linux system?

mvBlueFOX, mvBlueFOX3, mvBlueCOUGAR, mvTITAN, mvGAMMA, mvVirtualDevice, mvHYPERION, mvIMPACT Acquire

Apparently this is an issue of wxWidgets when installed on non-English systems. The problem is the decimal separator which in English is "." but in some languages apparently ",". Please enter the following on a terminal on the target Ubuntu system:

sudo update-locale LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"

Reboot the system afterwards. This should fix it, and you should be able to use decimals without any further issues.
