SOLVED how to change date format?
« on: December 18, 2017, 01:38:55 pm »
Date format in bottom right hand corner of screen is MMDDYYYY. I'd like it to be DDMMYYYY. Can anybody shed some light? I'm using openbox, so no lovely gui's. It doesn't look like the format setting is in Panel. The calendar I have shows up when you click on clock. If you hover cursor over clock the current date shows.

Sorry, don't know how to delete this, so I'll show what I found. In panel, under clock, I changed this one line from this:

TooltipFmt = %A %x

to this:

TooltipFmt = %a %e %m %Y       (this shows Tue 19 12 2017)
