I really want the time/date indicator applet to show me week numbers on the monthly view, and found this answer on how to enable: ubuntu application to show calendar with week numbers

However, my settings does not look like this, just a stripped down version without tabs, why? Is there a config file somewhere I can set this?

Settings screenshot:

You may need to update the gnome-control-center to get the rest of the features working.

Edit: After googling, found that this is a bug. The fix says you need to update.

  • That bug was marked as closed in April, but the option as described in the question is still not available as of the latest version of gnome-control-center: 1:3.4.2-0ubuntu0.4. At least, I can't see it, and I have all the latest packages as far as I know.

On 12.04 after moving from unity to gnome-shell (looks like your screenshot), I had to

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

to have weeknumbers in the calendar notification applet.
