Hi Neil,

Orage uses standard gtk_calendar, which in turn uses only locale 
settings to control
week starting date. In other words,  there are no settings in Orage to 
override week
starting day, but it depends only on locale.

Your locale is en_GB, which defines week starting day to be Monday. You 
need to
change to for example to en_US to get weekday starting on Sunday. So 
start Orage:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 orage

(You need to quit the running Orage naturaly before starting a new.)
