Kobo.conf template?

I have been searching for "Kobo.conf" and have not found the answer I was looking for, please accept my apologies if this is a FAQ:

The thread about changing the display time to 24-hr time mentioned editing the Kobo.conf file. I'm perfectly happy to do this, but I don't have one. My device only has two *.conf files - affiliate.conf and device.salt.conf - is there a Kobo.conf template available for editing and installing on my device?

Check in the Kobo directory which is subdirectory of the .kobo directory. The file is called Kobo eReader.conf (and yes, that is a space between Kobo and eRreader).

[ApplicationPreferences]
CurrentLocale=en

[ApplicationPreferences]
CurrentLocale=en_GB

Well, that was embarrassingly easy - thank you!

Well, hallelujah! I've been wanting to make this change since day one. Can you provide a link to the thread?

Check the message a few above your response. I quoted my original message about changing the locale in that message.

Yes, I read your response (and this entire thread) prior to my post. I still wanted to read the original thread the OP referenced.

Try a search on this forum. Display posts, "CurrentLocale=en_GB". There seem to be enough posts going back over the years. I don't know which one @Uncle Robin was referencing though I suspect it was the Kobo future firmware feature request thread which. AFAIK, was the most recent mention.

Yes, it was - I hadn't even thought of switching to my preferred 24-hr display before then, since there was no inbuilt clock prior to this firmware, iirc.

Thanks. Prior to posting I first tried searching MR as well as DuckDuckGo referencing the 24 hr time format. Your suggestion is a better bet.
