I can't quite see how to do that at the moment. And I do not want to 
change the time, only the calendar. How do I 'start orage' for example.

In my version of Mint KDE I can go to the system settings and choose 
which is the first day of the week. Simple. Not so easy in Xubuntu, or 
is it Xfce which is missing something? I have always liked the fact 
that Linux is so easy to configure to my own choices.

Thanks for helping,
