# Just how to transform the layout of the day & time presented in leading panel?

By default day and also time is presented by the clock applet on the leading right of the gnome desktop computer in Ubuntu. For me this presents something like "Tue Aug 3, 19:45". I would love to transform it to make the day terser and also to include e.g., ISO week number - to something like 03/08-19:45-W31.2

Exists anyhow I can define a "layout string" for just how the date-time is presented?

1. Open gconf-editor by pushing Alt+F2 and also keying gconf-editor
2. Navigate to apps -> panel -> applets.
3. Seek your applet. In my instance it is called applet_3, on an additional computer system its name is clock_0. Possibly an excellent way is to look (Strg+f or for United States key-boards Ctrl+f, turn on both areas in the search food selection) for ClockApplet (instance have to match).
4. Most likely to prefs. Adjustment the value of format to custom and also adjustment custom_format to whatever you such as. The syntax originates from strftime().
5. The layout will quickly transform if you enter some values.

Keep in mind : This alternative will certainly not operate in 10.10's netbook version, see this question for a remedy.
