How to configure clock in orage


I want the clock to show some specific things (like "Mon 18 May2009 5:00 PM CDT"), but don't know the specific (%c %d %s) keys to plug in to the configuration. Is there a ready reference?

Xubuntu 9.04, Lenovo X61s, Intel Core Duo CPU L7700 @ 1.80GHz, 4GB RAM

Type in "man clock" at a terminal window. Reference the "format group" section.

Setting format in clock

Thanks for the tip, but there was no format section in the man clock page. Also, the codes I'm looking for weren't there. I also tried man time, and found codes there, but they apply to timing various operations (not the clock). Any other suggestions?

Formatting clock display in linux

I found what I wanted here. I figured out to search for "linux clock format codes," which I gleaned from your reply to my original post. Thanks!

This site has a complete list of codes.
