Unable to schedule "PM" events in Gnome Calendar 3.20.2
Status in GNOME Calendar:
Status in gnome-calendar package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-calendar source package in Xenial:
Users who have their computer time set to 12-hour time (AM/PM) instead of
24-hour are unable to schedule PM events in gnome-calendar. 12-hour time is the
default in the United States.
The update fixes this issue and a few more.
1. Open the Calendar app.
2. Click on a date to schedule a new event. Click Edit Details.
3. Are you able to set an event that starts and ends in the afternoon?
Open the System Settings app. Click Time & Date. Switch time from
12-hour to 24-hour (or the opposite). Repeat steps 1-3.
4. Schedule a new event that starts on one day and ends on the next.
Click the all-day box and hit Done.
The event should span both days on the calendar.
Low. This is a new upstream stable bugfix release and is recommended for all
distros shipping GNOME 3.20.
The 3.20.3 release was insufficient and might have made things worse (
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/770679 ), but for 3.20.4 I helped identify
the git commits already applied in the 3.21 series to fix this issue.
Original Bug Report
The bug is 100% reproducible. I can schedule "AM" events and all day events,
but no "PM" events. I would expect the part of to advance after I had passed
noon, but I can keep cycling through the first 12 hours of the day.
