    If you are in XWindows, just right-click on the clock and select 'Date/Time Format' -- on the Date/Time tab, you'll have the option...

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    In Kde, after selecting "Date, Time format"
    select, "time & dates"
    Then look for the Time format, on the drop-down menu, you will see where you can change it to AM/PM.

    A suggestion: Right click on the time in the lower right ( ? ). Then select Date & Time Format. Then select Time & Date. Then under "Time Format" try the drop down menu setting "pH:MM:SS:APM" (or something like that).

    I haven't tried it myself, but it looks like the "p" is for am or pm.

    This is amazing. I keep expecting to get abused for being such a n00b like most other communities. Thanks for being so patient.
