How to Customize Panel Date Time display at Ubuntu Mate?



Hi, I need to change date time format to :
%a %H:%M %m/%d/%Y

What should I do?

I have already try use dconf at /org/mate/panel/objects/clock/prefs, but the clock format at panel still does not change. Or maybe wrong location because the clock format at panel not change.

Thank you in advance


As far as I know the date time display in the panel follows the language settings from “Language Support” => “Regional Formats”.


You can manually adjust the applet’s dconf settings via dconf-editor. This forum post covers it.

Yes it work :slight_smile:

Step 1:
So, I miss to manually change dconf at dconf at /org/mate/panel/objects/clock/prefs/ format from 24 hours to custom

Step 2:
Than change it dconf at /org/mate/panel/objects/clock/prefs/ custom-format to %a %H:%M %m/%d/%Y

and the result to panel clock: format change immediately after I press enter at dconf custom-format

Thank you very much :innocent:
