I have found this instruction to install dconf-editor, but I do not know the %letter formatting to switch "Mon Dec 18" to "Mon, 18 Dec", nor do I see how to use dconf Editor to accomplish this task.


You need to set %a, %d %b in the "custom-time-format" entry.

%a: Weekday as locale’s abbreviated name. (Mon)
%d: Day of the month as a zero-padded decimal number. (18)
%b: Month as locale’s abbreviated name. (Dec)

You must also set time-format to custom.
