When I type
date in gnome-terminal, or xterm it reads out in 24 hour time, is there any way to make it use 12 hour. According to
date --help using
%r should do the trick, but there are no examples given as to how to input that command. I've tried
date %r, and
date%r but they don't work. It should be noted that my GUI clock on the top panel of my screen is using 12 hour format at the moment.
