[SOLVED] Mosh complains ‘Did not find mosh server startup message.’

Just met this error few minutes before, and here goes the shortest fix : )

Situation
mosh exits with an error message like:

$ mosh user@somewhere.org
mosh-server: invalid option -- 'l'
Usage: mosh-server new [-s] [-i LOCALADDR] [-p PORT] [-c COLORS] [-- COMMAND...]
setlocale: No such file or directory
Connection to somewhere.org closed.
/usr/bin/mosh: Did not find mosh server startup message.

Solution

$ nano /etc/ssh/ssh_config

and comment the line

#SendEnv LANG LC_*

Done ! Enjoy mosh !
