am/pm verses 24 hour time
 
SuSE 9.1 - KDE
How do you set the clock to show the standard am/pm time instead of the 24 hour military time it shows now? I've looked, searched, traveled to the ends of the Earth and have not found the answer. Someone has to know how to do this, I mean come on ---- I've just installed PCBSD on an old beatup computer and it does it automatically!!!!!!!! GEEEEEEZZZZZEEE Guys......

Are you using KDE or gnome? In KDE it should be under Control Center -> Regional. Just set it to your region and it should fix this.

Try this:

Right-click the clock -> Date & Time Format -> Select Register 'Time & Dates' -> Change 'Time Format' to 'pH:MM:SS AMPM'.

Just a comment: Most of Europe uses what you call 'military time', not sure about the rest of the world that doesn't have english as native language. ;)

How changing it for fluxbox?
I've been wanting to change the clock setting in flux myself, but have been unable to figure out how.
