[CentOS] GNOME, numeric keypad & commas

Our local school has a 100 % CentOS network on servers and desktops.
Until recently, we were using a highly customized Xfce desktop
environment. Last week I decided to migrate all desktops from Xfce to
GNOME, which went quite well. Now I have to sand down some rough edges.

The secretary complained that she can't use the numeric keypad as
before. She's using LibreOffice Calc a lot, and she has to type in a lot
of numbers with commas. With Xfce this was not a problem. Under GNOME,
this won't work anymore. As far as I can tell, this has to do with the
locale-specific syntax of 0.00 vs 0,00. Our systems are all localized in

Any idea how this can be solved?
