Digital clock: month and date are in wrong order

I have the digital clock settings at “use region defaults”.
My region is set to United States American English (en_us)
But the date is displayed as 22 February, instead of February 22.

I think that’s how it should be. If you want to change it, go to Date format > Custom and add dddd, MMMM dd yyyy to get the desired result and apply.

My Arch KDE installation gets the proper US format without setting a custom date format, but maybe that’s a tweak of the next Plasma version. It doesn’t really matter, because your solution works perfectly. :slight_smile:
