Date/Time setting for thunderbird
my system: Slackware based x86_64 Linux.
I set the TZ to "Europe/Berlin", but that doesn't change the way "date" prints it's date/time string.
Now, my issue is: I run XFCe as X windows manager, and there seems to be no settings for time/date with its settings manager.

$ echo $TZ
I want in Thunderbird the date and time to be German / European, as in:
DD.MM.YYYY (German speaking countries style) or DD-MM-YYYY (European style)) - and not like MM/DD/YYYY " (USA style)
Also, the time in 24 hrs format, also known as "military time", and not as 12 hours am/pm style.
Any ideas how to handle this?
I have the right time and date set in the XFCe clock. But when I first installed Thunderbird, it was either the default (US) or the en_GB version, but now I switched to the German (de) version, since I installed its German localized calendar (aka Lightening), and I dislike part English and part german main menu... O_o
Did I miss some settings I need to do in the console? Or do I miss something with XFCe?
Or do I need to tell Thunderbird how it should handle my date/time listings?
