Ubuntu 17.10, gnome 3.26.1 (xorg)

If I start up my computer, it boots, and presents the login screen. If I do NOT login, but just let it sit for a while, eventually I get a screen that shows me the time. I then have to "swipe" that screen out of the way to see the login screen.

Regarding the screen with the clock that appears if I do not login right away: How do I modify that clock? Currently it is 24 hour format, I would like to change that. (Same for the clock on the top bar on the login screen itself: How does one change that format?)

(Note well: I am NOT talking about the lock screen that appears AFTER I have already logged in.)

  • Not going to be easy: unix.stackexchange.com/a/179153/70524 Both lock screens are from GNOME Shell (one from the GDM instance and one from your instance), which has no option for configuring the time format. – muru Feb 16 '18 at 2:50
  • hmmmm.... Thanks muru for the explanation. Kinda sad news, but not such a big deal I guess. Thank you again for the reply. – dln949 Feb 16 '18 at 3:25
