Is it possible to change the time format on the xfce lockscreen?

Hello I was wondering if you could change the time on the xfce lockscreen (xflock4) to 12hr format? everything else on my system is in 12hr format but that. I tried looking everywhere but I can seem to find where I could change this? Is it just not possible?

Hi and welcome to our forum.

I think you might want to apply your locale settings system-wide. On Xubuntu, there is an app named Language Support, can be launched from the terminal with gnome-language-selector.

Perhaps you could tell more about your system?


Xubuntu 20.04

When I check my /etc/locale.conf everything is set to "en_US.UTF-8" so I dont think its that. Im running endeavourOS.

I installed Xubuntu on a virtual machine and its the same case on that distro as well the lockscreen time wont change from a 24 hour format which makes me think it just cant be changed or something?

If xfce4-screensaver is the screensaver that you are using, then yes, it is hard coded.

Edit: Also there is this bug report.

I noticed my Manjaro respects the lightdm-gtk-greeter settings on lockscreen, so I figured it out on my Arch.

installed `light-locker`
removed xfce4-screensaver package
run this: xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /general/LockCommand -s "light-locker-command --lock" --create -t string
restart: lightdm


and tadam, my lockscreen background, panel and theme, everything is the same as the greeter.
