    Question Date Format in Gnome

    I have upgraded from 12.3 to 13.1 today and the date format appears as 19 Nov, 10:22 PM. How can I modify that to traditional USA Date format - Nov 19?

    Thanks.

    Hi
    You can modify via the gnome tweak tool.

    I looked through the Gnome Tweak Tool in Suse 13.1 - it has "show clock" but no way to modify clock settings. ?

    IIRC, gnome printed the time and date as stated by the environment
    variable "LC_TIME". Run "locale" and find out the value.

    Type "locale" in a terminal, what do you see?

    Well, then it is correct, you have the default US definition.

    I don't know how to tell "date" to print the date/time using the current
    locale specification, though. It would serve to test it.
