Week starts Tuesday

I usually switch to English (UK) locale first thing after installing
Linux distro to have the week start on Monday and not Saturday in
Gnome’s Clock Applet. Did the same to OpenSUSE 11.1, and… it now
starts on Tuesday. Can someone advise how to fix it manually? And of
course, would be nice to have an update fix it automatically for the
dummies like me.

This is a problem that I am also experiencing with the week start day
being on Tuesday and the first week of 2009 beginning in week 2 of the

There is an issue that I have found with regards to using the en_GB
locale and have found a bug logged at sourceware.org with a proposed
patch - ‘Bug 7068 - en_GB locale has wrong week specifier’

Unfortunately I am not technical enough to deploy this patch and I am
wondering if there is anyone in the community who could post a HOWTO so
that we can correct this problem on our systems while waiting for the
final fix.
