I want to show date in top bar using gnome-tweak-tool. I get the GUI solution How to show date in top bar of deskop in ubuntu 18.04 LTS?

enter image description here

I want to get the CLI solution so that I can add this in my post OS installation script.

This question may be helpful to answer this question. How can I script the settings made by gnome-tweak-tool?


Open Terminal and run

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-date true

to enable the option to show date in top bar.

  • Thanks. I like your solution. would you tell me from where you get the key clock-show-date? That helps me get another key also. – alhelal May 25 '18 at 16:46

    @alhelal You can install dconf-Editor (GUI application) and browse all the keys and schemas. – pomsky May 25 '18 at 17:00
  • Am I right that dconf-editor is a very promising answer to OP‘s other question? If so, please write an answer about it there! – dessert May 25 '18 at 21:11
  • @dessert Hmm... that question has couple of really good answers, but I believe OP (and others) would find this very helpful: askubuntu.com/questions/522833/… – pomsky May 25 '18 at 21:25
