Change first day of week in Ubuntu’s Gnome Calendar

6 Feb 2008

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.
