    Make digital clock show 24 hour time?

    How can I get the kubuntu digital clock to display 24 hour time? I've tried system time settings and digital clock settings but I can't seem to find it...

    Go into System Settings, Locale, Date & Time tab, change the drop-down Time format to HH:MM:SS, click Apply.

    I did that, and thank you for the quick response. However my digital clock widget still shows AM/PM. Thank you!

    Sorry to ask the obvious question but haved you logged out and back in again?

    I'm not sure if you need to but I do occasionally see references to changes only taking place for newly started applications.
