[patch] 12hr time format wrong in en_GB
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:35 EDT
Description of Problem:
The 12hr display is wrong on the clock applet: 13:38 dislays at 01:38 instead
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set it to 12hr display
2. Wait until afternoon.
Well, I have to ask - are you sure your time is set right. ;-)
Surely someone would have noticed and reported this by now...
Yes, it is set correctly!
In the preferences window, I flip between '12 hour' and '24 hour' and get
12 hour: 02:34
24 hour: 14:34
(Note: it is the same on the gdm login screen too.)
But actually, now that I look at it, 'date +%r' says '02:35:57', which is also
wrong. I guess it's a glibc bug. LANG is en_GB.

Well, you certainly need to set am_pm too...

This one works for me.
Is the 12h format still used? I mean not understood, but it is the official format?
This all works fine now actually.
