more caveats with using vlc-warp compiled from source

Following up from my earlier post on compiling vlc-warp on Linux, there were some issues faced by T and posted to the small_planetarium yahoo group. Apparently the warp was not happening, the error message on the terminal was that the mesh file was malformed. Finally, the issue turned out to be locale dependent. Either using a US English locale throughout, or changing . to , in the mesh file, solved the issue. Apparently in the Polish locale, the separator for decimal point is comma , and not dot .

So, while compiling and using vlc-warp, if your locale uses some other decimal mark other than ., you will need to modify the mesh files from Paul suitably!
