I’d like to change the formatting of the time in the gnome panel. Currently, the separator between hours and minutes is dot, so five past thirteen is displayed as 13.05.
I don’t like dot as the separator, I’d rather see colon as separator. So the above time becomes 13:05 and is clearly distinguishable from the date 13.05.
I haven’t found yet a way to change it . Can someone point me to resources or configuration files where this change could be done?
You used to be able to set some things in gnome-tweaks or dconf-editor
But I think you only get things like 24vs12 hour format or including weekdays…
There are a few extensions though …
Welcome to the forum
The format for displaying the time that is being used is set in region & language in settings. (as far as I can tell)
For instance I have English as a language and Nederland as format. This gives me the : separator between the hours and minutes.
Thanks @cscs and @Hanzel for your tips. I looked at DE, NL, FR, BE, ES, etc., they all have time formatted as 13:05. I think this is the correct way for all (most) of Europe.
For some reason, my region & country settings FI, the time is formatted with the dot, which I believe is incorrect
I’ll check if the extensions might help me to correct this.
The date menu formatter extension did the trick and it gives me a few other extra tweaks as well.
It would be nice, though, if the locale settings for FI would be corrected.
