I'm specifically looking to change the formatting in two places:
On the desktop, the date/time reads "Sat 21:05". I would like it to read "23-Jul-11 21:05" or "23 Jul 11 21:05". In other words, I want to change the display of the day of week to display the day, short month name, and short year.
On the login screen, the date/time reads "Sat 9:06 PM". I would like to change it to either the same as the desktop ("23-Jul-11 21:05" or "23 Jul 11 21:05") or the preferred display of the full date in the format ("Saturday, 23 July 2011 21:05") where the full day, date, full month, full year, and time (in 24-hour format) is displayed.
I don't see any options to adjust this. I would suspect it's possible, but I'm not sure what config file it would be in or what options I would adjust.
