Re: 24 hour time in Thunderbird -

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


That's not a very good approach...
I'm using the en_US locale, but always customize my clock output to display in 24hr format. KDE allows me to do this.
I don't really like how Thunderbird thinks it's smarter than I.

It depends on your locale settings how applications from
(Firefox, Thunderbird etc.) display the date. If you prefer ISO-8601
format, use the special locale named "en_DK". For example, UTF-8
users may set "LC_TIME=en_DK.utf8; export LC_TIME" before running applications. If you only want to change date format
in Thunderbird I'd recommend a shell alias or a small wrapper script.
