This is my first post on your mailing list and I have been enjoying the
work you guys put into the Lubuntu distro. I am by far no linux expert,
I love how lightweight Lubuntu is and how useful it can be to bring old
back to a realm of usefulness.
However, I did have a suggestions regarding the LXDE Clock settings. On a
default install %R is what the clock is set at, many PC users are more
used to the standard time that is used in Windows, on phones, watches
and other devices. Currently military time is the standard. I would like
to propose a change to how time is displayed on the taskbar. I think
%l:%M %p is another format that more people are used to. Which looks
like (7:37 PM ) when it is displayed. To find out how to do this I had
to look it up, which is fine
because I am a bit more technical. Another idea if changing the time
perhaps a dropdown box could be used here to allow users to change the
style of the time display. It would be much more intuitive for new
users, I consider this another of the small papercuts that this Ubuntu
I have to admit the clock is a bit of a faff to alter and really could be
better. Personally I think the unambiguous 24 hour clock is the best
default setting and hate having to change phones, etc. to use it. A
drop-down menu with a couple of preset options would make life easier.
Thanks for your time, I really do appreciate the effort you guys put in
and will try to chime in from time to time if I have any thoughts on
discussions in the mailing list.
Thank you, it's ideas like this that go to make Lubuntu better, as it's
these 'little' things that tend to annoy people the most. Feel free to
chime in as often as you wish. We also have an IRC channel at #lubuntu on
freenode.net if you feel you have anything more urgent to discuss.
