Change First Day of the Week in Ubuntu's Calendar

The first day of the week in Ubuntu's internal calender can be changed with the following steps:

  • check which locale is running, using the locale command (ie en_AU)
  • sudo vi /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_AU and change first_weekday to 2
  • regenerate the locale using sudo locale-gen
  • get the calendar to reload using killall gnome-panel
