Hi. Usually in XFCE you can right click on the time go to properties and custom format then:
Code:
%r
or other codes
if that doesn't work in Xubuntu's version use the terminal: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-s...ommand-prompt/ best wishes and have fun.

If you are using the standard xfce clock, it is in the Clock Options settings:

The clock uses 24 hour time no matter what you do, but you can change the display. You can set it to display whatever you want, and whatever timezone you want. Assuming you're talking about the panel clock, the above links will work. If you're talking about another clock, you need to check the settings for it, and there is almost certainly a way to change its display.

Thanks jamison. I'm sure it would work fine but I'm just so new it looked pretty complicated. Appreciate it. Gregg

That link got me to find the analog clock, which is fine with me. Thanks.
