I just started this course and just installed R and RStudio but I got this warning/error messages when I open R and RStudio:
During startup - Warning messages:
1: Setting LC_CTYPE failed, using "C"
2: Setting LC_COLLATE failed, using "C"
3: Setting LC_TIME failed, using "C"
4: Setting LC_MESSAGES failed, using "C"
5: Setting LC_MONETARY failed, using "C"
[R.app GUI 1.67 (7152) x86_64-apple-darwin13.4.0]
WARNING: You're using a non-UTF8 locale, therefore only ASCII characters will work.
Please read R for Mac OS X FAQ (see Help) section 9 and adjust your system preferences accordingly.
Section 9 is just Acknowledgements so I cant find the help the software refer to.
Please, can anyone help me with this? It seems important to get this fixed before I do work with RStudio.
Thanks a lot! Appreciate very much any help.
