I would like to view a calendar for the current month, with each week having a week number against it. Is there an application to do this?

The properties under the clock / calendar can be adjusted to do that. – Ringtail Mar 18 '12 at 17:16
Please see this:… It works on my 12.04(Classic-gnome2) – user1333445 Apr 16 '13 at 8:43

The default time & calendar indicator applet has this built it - you just need to enable the option.

Has the settings menu been dumbed down? I could not see such an option in Ubuntu 11.10 running Gnome Shell and hence I had to do – k0pernikus Dec 7 '12 at 10:53
This menu for Time and date settings is disabled in my system. what do i do? – vipin8169 Jan 29 '15 at 7:12
@vipin8169 - please create a new question with a link back to this one. Give details of your system - show some screenshots of the issue – fossfreedom Jan 29 '15 at 7:58

Running gsettings set show-weekdate true solved the problem for me.

There's something missing here. Under both 12.04 and 12.10 this results in the error message: "No such schema ''" – fabricator4 Dec 7 '12 at 11:27
@fabricator4 I am running Gnome Shell instead of Unity. – k0pernikus Dec 15 '12 at 21:15
Still works like a charm in Ubuntu 13.10 with GNOME (Shell) 3.10, with the exception of a slight misalignment of the numbers. – Forage Feb 4 '14 at 10:26

On 12.04 after moving from unity to gnome-shell, I had to

gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime show-week-numbers true

to have weeknumbers in the calendar notification applet.

This is not acutally a calendar application, but it displays the week numbers: The Gnome-Calendar applet. A screenshot from Gnome2:
