How to set Monday as first day of the week in Gnome

If you are (as I am) annoyed by the default setting of Sunday as first day of the week, there’s an easy fix for that. Following will set Monday as first day of the week on your gnome-based system.


Just edit your ~/.profile file and add this line:
export LC_TIME="en_GB.utf8"

After that, you would have to restart your Gnome session. Either you log out and then log back in again or type this in your terminal:
sudo killall gnome-session

My name is Aleksandar Jakovljević and I am a web developer from Belgrade, Serbia. I was born in Smederevo, in 1980. I started focusing on web development since late 2003. I am mostly focused on open source web technologies. I specialised in PHP, focusing on Symfony framework, with skills in Drupal and WordPress, too. I worked more than 7 years for art_net studio and 10 years for Computer Rock (former Spoiled Milk). Now I am working on developing industry leading subscription management system as a part of Plenigo team since August 2021. I love the web and everything related to it. The possibility to publish your ideas quickly and make them available to the entire world is what made me decide to pursue a career in web development.
