Clock applet's calendar puts Sunday at right: no preference to change this
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem:
The clock applet shows a calendar that puts Sunday at the right
instead of at the left, and the Preferences dialog gives no way
to change this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the clock applet to the panel.
2. Click on the applet to have it show a calendar.
3. Open the Preferences dialog through the applet's context menu.
I recently upgraded my FC1 system to FC2, and I use it in the
Moving to gtk+, but the week start has been localized to be Monday in
the fr locale, so this is expected behaviour
Calendars in QuÃ©bec almost always start the week on Sunday.
Perhaps the bug should be retitled "gtk+ assumes that languages
and week starts are correlated". Anyway, I hope this situation
will be seen as a bug and that week starts will be made explicitly
configurable through the Preferences dialog.
Well, its not exactly gtk which makes this assumption. Thats part of
the posix locale model.
No, we will not make this explicitly configurable again after
changing to the current mechanism of deriving calendar information
from the locale. The correct fix for this would be to change the
for the fr_CA locale. However, it appears that there are no special
translations for fr_CA.
