On line 75 of the meld unix exectuable I added en_US

I got

Couldn't bind the translation domain. Some translations won't work.

(process:22395): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
    Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Warning: attempting to add an interface (GtkEditable) to class
(HistoryFileEntry) after class_init
  type_register(cls, namespace.get('__gtype_name__'))
Fontconfig warning: ignoring UTF-8: not a valid region tag

but then it did work...
