Change first day of week in Ubuntu’s Gnome Calendar
|06-Feb-2008||Posted by Sonia Hamilton under Ubuntu|
Under the Australian locale, the first day of the week appears as Sunday rather than Monday, which is incorrect. To change it:
- check which locale is running, using the locale command (ie en_AU)
- sudo vi /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_AU and change first_weekday and first_workday to 2
- regenerate the locale using sudo locale-gen
- get the calendar to reload using killall gnome-panel
In another post, I also show how to automate this, so it doesn’t get reset by Ubuntu’s automatic updates.
