8 I'm sorry not to be more precise, but I suspect that I may not have the
9 calendar application you are using. But here is what I found:
11 1. emerge (or run if installed, but it's now a separate package, and I
12 didn't have it, amazingly) gconf-editor.
14 2. in gconf-editor, go to / => apps => evolution => calendar (this of
15 course assumes that evo controls the calendar, which it well might,
16 since I don't have evo or eds installed and I still have this settings
17 tree) => display
19 3. In the "display" tree (items shown now in the right pane), change
21 "week_start_day"
23 from "1" (Monday, which is what must be the default, as that's what mine
24 is set to and I've never touched it)
26 to
28 "0" (which represents Sunday, as the text will tell you).
30 I suppose there's an easier way to do this (perhaps if you have
31 Evolution installed, you can change it in their prefs setting), and
32 perhaps this is in fact not the setting that controls the calendar, but
33 I hope it is, and I hope it helps.
35 If not, trawl through gconf-editor and see if anything else looks
36 relevant (for example, if you know the name of the calendar application,
37 it probably has a settings tree in gconf-editor).
39 HTH,
