Will I ever be able to convenience people that "show year" is actually a useful feature when taking screenshots over time?
Now, that I've upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and GNOME 3.28, it looks like I'll have to start this 2009 battle all over again. It will not allow me to format the clock the way I want it to display. In Unity, I could at least achieved my desired clock format with a command: gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime time-format "'custom'" ; gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime custom-time-format "'%A | %m-%d-%Y | %l:%M%p'" In GNOME 3.28 on Ubuntu 18.04, I've yet to figure out a way to achieved my desired format. The GUI doesn't offer "show year" and I've yet to discover a command (like the one above) that achieves the exact custom format I desire. ** Tags added: bionic -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of DX Packages, which is subscribed to indicator-datetime in Ubuntu.

Yes, I know what year it is, but I have very good reason for wanting it shown. For years, I've been collecting screen-shots, when I'm doing something I think is pretty cool. When I use to use windows, these screen shots (over the years) have always showed the current year. However, since April of 2007 (The date I started using Ubuntu exclusively), my screen shots have not included the year, because the Gnome clock doesn't provide this capability. <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeAndDate#settings>: "'Year' should be both insensitive and unchecked whenever 'Date and month' is unchecked..."
