Fluxbox Clock Format


Can anyone tell me how to set the clock format from my current 5:30 to 5:30 PM 24 Apr 2004? Or this is not possible? Couldn't find this in the Fluxbox documentation.

Thanks

it's in the ~/.fluxbox/init file. I'mnot sure exactly what symbols do what but try playing around with % followed by a letter. IIRC %y or %Y does the year
