Nothing earth shattering, but I just started trying Linux again, this time using IceWM. How do I get the clock to display in the 12 hour format instead of the annoying-as-Hell 24 hour format? To me it's fine, but the rest get confused seeing 18:18 instead of 06:18 P.M.

a) I don't know. I hardly even use Linux. I only get 5 FPS in Max Payne under TransGaming's WineX, comapred to 40 FPS in Windows.
b) I ALWAYS use 24-hour format. And I'm on Windows (I played around with the regional and language options). BTW, it's 19:02 right now.

Please avoid using it today, especially in technical applications! Even in the U.S., the widely respected Chicago Manual of Style now recommends using the international standard time notation in publications.

CAn't you just right click on the clock and select some kind of option thing?

That's what I was hoping, but notta. Shrug. And I configured Linux to mount CDs automatically... i.e., not play them automatically, just mount. It worked the first two times, but it hasn't worked since, sigh. I can't figure out why either.

You wouldn't happen to be booting up with a CD in your CD-ROM, would you? Sometimes that has caused troubles for me when I try to mount a CD-ROM.

Are you using Gnome or KDE? In KDE 3.1 (running SuSE 8.2) I can just right-click on the clock and change it.

Oh, just realised that IceWM is another desktop environment, rather than a distro.

:)

There are IceWM-based themes you can use with KDE, but it's an entirely different thing.
Kubuntu 8.04 (kernel 2.6.24-25-generic) / KDE 3.5.10
CentOS 4.8 (kernel 2.6.9-78.0.22.ELsmp) / KDE 3.5.10
Mac OS X 10.6.1 (Snow Leopard) / iPhone 3GS (32GB black)

I am using KDE and IceWM since both have their plusses.

IceWM is just incredible small, fast and efficient and extremely easy to configure (once you found out that you just need to update a file :) ) without loosing essential functionality. Definitely my favorite light-weight window manager.
