Hi There - it looks like you are launching the jalview 2.7 debian/Ubuntu package, which is very much out of date. Aside from that, the error seems to be due to the US locale settings, causing one of Jalview's libraries to fail.

We probably won't be updating the debian Jalview package until 2016, so for the moment I suggest you try installing Jalview to a shared location with the latest installation package at
http://www-test.jalview.org/Web_Installers/InstData/GenericUnix/install-jalview.bin

Let us know how you get on !
Jim Procter.
