Gnome3 doesn't include my region. I need:

  • calendar week to start on monday
  • british-english spelling
  • 8.5x11 as the default document size for printing
  • celsius for temperatures
  • miles for distances
  • currency in dollars
  • etc etc etc

How can I make this happen?

My thought is, make a new region. Or modify an existing region. But I can't find the documentation for this.

Locale setting is not a function of the GNOME3 desktop. You need to set your locale in your Operating System. man locale.
