Ubuntu MATE: Custom time format for clock panel widget

  • Run dconf-editor (as your user)
  • Go to org / mate / panel / objects / clock / prefs
  • Change the key format to custom
  • Change the key custom-format to a strftime format string

A good, space-saving format string for German users is %d.%m. %H:%M. This shows the current date, month, hour and minute (e.g. 24.12. 23:59).

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
