    Thanks, artm, works perfectly. And avoids messing with files that are overridden by apt-get upgrade later. Just grand.

    Re: HOWTO: Set Gnome Calendar First Day of Week

    Thank you very much!

    Having Sunday as first day was really annoying.

    I'm actually using Fedora, but it works the same, only little thing I had to change is the locale-gen call (as it is an Ubuntu-specific command) with:

    Code:
    sudo localedef -f UTF-8 -i en_US en_US.UTF-8

    I had seen bunch of other ways to do this, but they all imposed some locale errors in especially Python scripts. This has so far worked wonderful, thanks!

    Great article - "easy", "fast" and "reliable".

    Very useful. Where I can get other days code? i.e. Friday and Saturday.

    For the US, Friday should be 6 and Saturday 7. I don't know of a listing, so you would just have to experiment. Since I wrote this guide it would seem there are probably other ways to set the DOW.

    For instance, Evolution's start day can now be set with gconf-editor:
    Code:
    gconf-editor /apps/evolution/calendar/display/week_start_day
    In Evolution, Sunday is 0 and Saturday is 6.

    Well, I'm a bit surprised that 2 1/2 years later this fix is still required, but I'm glad it worked for you.
