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 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 askubuntu.com/a/226443/32792 – 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
  • created, but i am not sure of how to link the two. askubuntu.com/questions/114032/… – vipin8169 Jan 29 '15 at 10:07

Running gsettings set org.gnome.shell.calendar 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 'org.gnome.shell.calendar'" – 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.

As user1333445 advised to look at answer 130006 I installed dconf-tools for my Ubuntu 18.10:

  • $ dconf-editor
  • navigate to: /org/gnome/desktop/calendar/show-weekdate
  • turn OFF Use default value
  • set to True Custom value
  • click the checkmark at the bottom to apply

Yet another way in Ubuntu 20.04:

  • Install »GNOME Tweaks«
sudo apt install gnome-tweaks
  • Menu »Top bar« > Section »Calendar« > Toogle »Show week numbers«

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