By default Crunchbang shows the military time format, e.g. 17:40 or in actual format, %H:%M. This doesn’t suit everyone. You might want to add the day, month, and year to it. 24-hour format may not work for you. You can choose 12-hour format instead.
To know about the available time and date formats, open Terminal and execute the following:
For your ease, I’m showing you my format. I chose %a %e %b %Y %H:%M:%S. This shows me like this Mon 3 Mar 2014 17:45:40.
You can choose as I did or tweak the settings the way you want it. For changing the clock of tint2 panel, do the following:
- Right click on the desktop and from the drop-down menu, go to Settings > tint2 > Edit config file.
- It would open tint2 config file in Geany text editor. From the Tool-bar select Find.
- Find for time1_format.
- You’ll find the format as it’s value. Change it to the way you want. Save it after you’re done.
- Right click on desktop and from the drop-down menu, select Settings > tint2 > Restart tint2.
Your tint2 panel clock would be changed according to your choice.
