I'm running Unity on Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition here.

In this screenshot, there is this small orange square on the calendar which I presume is supposed to mark the present day of month.

enter image description here

Still, it seems to highlight a random date, which can be set by any user.

It is worse: even if I set it to the current day of month, it doesn't get updated when the clock hits 12AM.

So, I would like it to highlight the current day, update itself automatically, and keep normal users from changing it.

Is it possible ?

Thanks a lot!!

  • By the way, activating NTP didn't solve any of the issues.
