Talking How do I change the System Date format to DD/MM/YYYY on RHEL Workstatio 6.1


G'day all,

How do I change the System Date format to DD/MM/YYYY on RHEL Workstation 6.1 running GNOME 2.28.2. I tried the Date and Time clock in the Control Centre but I could not find an option how to do that. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi there,

I think you are looking for this: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Date_display_format

Read the section: Configuring the date/time system settings on your computer in the above mentioned article

You will find that the date format is based on the language selection.

Thanks for putting me on the right track T3RM1NVT0R. I opened the Linux Control Panel, then selected the Language icon and changed the system language to English(Australia) and the system date format got changed to DD/MM/YYYY. Thanks again, best regards, Skinutter.
