    RE: Wrong date format for my locale
    I've seen it in Gnome and (currently) LXDE. I have figured out how to configure the clock to display the way I want. I just thought I had found a bug in something deeper.

    RE: Wrong date format for my locale
    When I try the things you suggested in LXTerminal, I see what you see. Thanks for that tip. But the digital clock on the taskbar displays "Fri 16 Mar 2012 05:30:01 PM PDT." So maybe the bug is in the digital clock?

    Wrong date format for my locale
    My locale is correctly set to en_US.utf8. The correct format for dates in this locale is "Fri Mar 16 2012." However, Linux, in every distro I've tried, will only display the date as "Fri 16 Mar 2012." It appears that the en_US.utf8 defines this incorrectly. Is there a way to correct this problem system-wide on my computer? Can this definition be found in a file somewhere, that I can edit? Is there a place where I can go to report this problem to whomever maintains the UTF standards? Thanks for any help.

    Looking for a program
    I've been looking for some time for a program that will allow me to do the following: [ul] [li]Select a folder containing digital photographs (Adobe DNG format).[/li] [li]Create thumbnails of the images.[/li] [li]Create an XML file that contains records for each image. The XML file should include the EXIF and/or IPTC data for the images, as well as a reference to the matching thumbnail. It would also be best if I have some control over the structure of the XML.[/li] [/ul] I've built and maintained my own photography website by hand using XML and XSL for several years now, and I'm just looking to see if there are programs out there that could simplify the process. There are countless programs that will generate an HTML-based gallery, but I'm looking for one that does XML. I've had no luck for some time now. Does anyone know of such a program? I prefer that it work on Linux.
