Add Date To Clock; Change To 12 Hour Format ~ Gnome 3 (Gnome Shell) Ubuntu 11.04

  • If you want the full clock in Gnome Shell, you can get it by doing the following steps:

    Click the clock and go to Date and Time Settings.

    After clicking Unlock at the bottom the left of the window, click on next to 24-hour time to change the clock to 12-hour time.

    To add the full date to the clock, use dconf. To open it, press alt + f2 and run:

    dconf-editor

    Go to org > gnome > shell > clock, and check the box to show date.

    The clock will then have the full date, not just the day of the week.

    Any way to change the formatting of the date, like using the %Y%M%D format from date?

    This is what I use.  Bit over the top but it works for me.

     %I:%M %p on %A, %d %B %Y
