Date displayed is mm/dd/yyyy. Can I change to dd/mm/yyyy

Posted

Using new system Linuxmint 19. Messages are displayed by mm/dd/yyyy but I'm sure my previous system showed dd/mm/yyyy. How can I change.

I am also a Linux user and the date format thing stopped working for me a few versions back.

I resorted to using the Super Date Format add-on.

ConfigDate also looks promising.

Thanks for the suggestions. ConfigDate doesn't do it. Super Date Format would if I could load it but it won't. It's posted as earlier Thunderbird versions only.

The addon doesnt work for later versions of T-bird. :-( Seems I have to put up with this annoying and non-standard datestyle now. :-((( (I tell my American clients "we'll drive on the right when you start using metric and standard date-formats". Hahahaha)
