Calendar

I've come to notice that my computer is trying to convince me that the week now starts on Tuesday. Were it Monday or Sunday, I could live with it - the latter I wouldn't believe, but that's beside the point.

It's probably real easy to resolve, but how can I set my calendar so that the week starts on Monday??? I don't remember setting it to start on Tuesday!

Check this screenshot for details.

This is a known bug if you set your language to en_UK in Gnome.... Still waiting for a fix. Look through the forum and you'll see it's been discussed before.

Thanks, both... The fix is going back to en_US.

New problem: How do I switch back to English (US)? I mean, I go to Administration -> Language, and select English (US), and it tells me this will take effect next time I log in. But it doesn't all language stays the same, except that in the language screen it says I'm using English (US).
I tried it by switching to Dutch (I am Dutch, so it's not a big problem), but I can't switch back to English! It stays Dutch, no matter what I do! HELP!

Something I can think of that should work, is to manually remove all the English (US) language files, then reboot, and switch to English (US) so it has to re-download all those files. But where are those files?

Edit: At least the calendar is correct in Dutch! But also non-Dutch speakers wish to use this computer...

Tell the other users to learn Dutch? .

(Ok, I admit this may not be practical).

Hm, good idea! I teach English for a living, but I could expand of course... Would be a good career move!
