Thread: How to change date format in Yast? - 11.2

    Default How to change date format in Yast? - 11.2

    I installed the UK version of Suse 11.2, but Yast shows the date in the American format (mm/dd/yyyy) and therefore my other programs, like kmymoney also show that format. Is there any way I can change it?

    I have checked under system settings and it shows the European format there.

    Many thanks.

    It is set to UK/GB in system settings, but Yast -> System -> Date and Time still shows the American format.

    No, it shows exactly what's showing on yours. But because it's the wrong way around (sorry, not American after all), it shows it the wrong way on other apps.

    In kmymoney there is no date setting. I've read, that you have to change the date format on the system. Well, maybe it's a glitch in kmymoney, that hopefully will be fixed soon.

    For KDE:
    "Configure Desktop"->(Personal) "Regional & Language"

    There's a setting for time and dates that allows you to change their displayed formats.

    For other desktops, there are probably equivalent settings, but I don't know them.
