--- Comment #15 from Jack <ostroffjh at users.sourceforge.net> ---
This definitely seems like a locale related issue.  I created a new file (in a
Ubuntu 18.04 as a VirtualBox guest) using a recent appimage.  I set the locale
to Finnish, created a new KMM file using the Finnish Markka as default
currency.  First, the problem is not specific to the split editor.  Just
entering a transaction in the ledger, when I get to the amount field, hitting
the - key has no effect.   If I type some digits first, hitting the - key
brings up the calculator.  If I click or use the arrow keys to put the entry
position at the beginning of the number, hitting the - key does enter a "-"
making the number negative.
I don't know anything about Finnish - does a default display of a negative
number put the "-" at the beginning or end?  Is the "-" typically typed at the
beginning or end of a string of digits?  If the KDE locale handling is
expecting the minus sign after the rest of the number, it will never get it,
since KMM seems to treat a "-" anywhere except at the beginning of a number as
a call for displaying the calculator.
At this point, I don't know what else to test or try.
