« on: January 16, 2019, 05:51:28 pm »
Im scratching my head on how to change the date to our standard format and the temp from Celsius to Fahrenheit.  Any help would be appreciated.

There may be more than one way to change the date format to mm/dd/yyyy used in the US.  Here's what i do.  Go to Expert Mode and SSH.  Log in.  Then type

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Scroll down that list and de-select everything except for en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8.  The asterisk means selected.  No asterisk means not selected.  Use the keyboard tab key to select OK.  Again use the keyboard tab key and spacebar to select en_US.UTF-8  and then press OK.  I am not sure if the new locale takes effect immediately or if a reboot is needed.
