how to change time format in evolution


I always use evolution to download my email, but recently I get bored by the time setting that always use am/pm.
So I was thinking how I could change the time format into 24 hour settings. Well, after much of hard work I finally knew how to do it.
you just have to type this command into your console

sudo update-locale LC_TIME=en_ZA.UTF-8

and try to type this command in your konsole and it should show the following line

jacobian@jacobian-laptop:~$ cat /etc/default/locale
LANG=”en_US.UTF-8″
LC_TIME=en_ZA.UTF-8

then you have to log out and log back in for the changes to take effect. And you will see that your evolution now uses 24 hour settings

PS : it also changes the all time format into 24 hour setting in your computer. 🙂
