I just want to add that I successfully changed the currentlocale to sv_SE for Swedish dates and 24hr clock.

I changed en_US to en_NZ, powered my Glo off then back on, and now it displays the date in proper NZ format DD/MM/YY instead MM/DD/YY.

See post #120 for a list of English language locales available in firmware 2.4.0.
Thanks Geoff...

For the record, I found the file Kobo eReader.conf on my Mini directly under \.kobo\Kobo\ on my PC. So I am not sure about the reference to /media/KOBOeReader/...

However, once there, the change was straightforward and effective.

One comment though. Being an Aussie, my first inclination was to use en_AU for my locale. This changed the date as I wanted, but showed the time in 12-hour format with AM/PM. As I prefer the 24-hour format, I have changed the locale to en_GB, and the Mini is behaving nicely, with no apparent problems.

I think that's the path on a Mac. Or maybe Linux.

Same thing here. But, it just feels wrong to do it

Looks like the mount point for a Kobo ereader on a Linux box.

I guessed it might be that.

how do you comment out a line in the eReader.conf file? i tried using "#" and when i next opened up the file, it was converted to "%23". i wish that there was a way to set the time/date format other than changing the locale. i like the 24 hour format, so i changed it from en_US to en_GB. and the date format became "day-of-week, dd month yyyy" ("dd/mm/yyyy" in short format). this was an improvement over the US date format, in my opinion. but i would like to take it a step further and have it in reverse order (yyyy mm dd), which is the international format. i think that sweden (sv_SE) uses this format. but it also changes the language the date is displayed in. south africa (en_ZA) displays short form as "yyyy/mm/dd" but long form as "day-of-week dd month yyyy".
