A workaround for the "." vs "," issue is a wrapper.

For example, my locale is en_US.utf8, but I'm using a German keyboard.
I added a desktop file executing the wrapper:

  $ grep Exec /usr/share/applications/mate-calc-de.desktop 
  $ cat /usr/local/bin/mate-calc-de 
  LANG=de_DE.utf8 exec mate-calc "$@"

For simple calculations I'm usually using galculator, I usually don't
need a scientific calculator, let alone a paper roll calculator.
