    Re: 20.04 change time from 24 to 12 hour clock

    So i installed gnome-tweak-tool and it changed my settings. I no longer have an option of "Details" now in my settings. If i purge that, i still have my settings changed from default.

    IVe also tried reinstalling it to get it back to default but it does not seem to work
    Code:
     251  sudo apt-get purge gnome-tweak-tools
      252  sudo apt-get remove gnome-control-center
      253  sudo apt-get install gnome-control-center
      254  history

    You should be able to change your time format by going into settings and opening Date & Time which is located above About.

    I don't know anything about Gnome-Tweak-Tool as I've never used it.

    Hello micahpage,


    I believe we all have felt that way.

    I know I have and still do sometimes.

    Glad to help.

    And your welcome.
