Title: How to make calendar points to Sunday as first day of the week in Ubuntu 18.04

A similar question was asked here: Monday as first day in Gnome-Shell (instead of Sunday)

  1. Use sudo -H gedit /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_GB.
  2. Edit the value of first_weekday to 1.
  3. Save the file, restart the system.

There is a second variable: first_workday that is set to 2. Some calendar’s may refer to this variable but I would initially leave it unchanged unless further tweaking is needed.

Essentially you will make your GB locale look like the US locale:

$ cat /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_GB | grep week -A1
week    7;19971130;4
first_weekday 2
first_workday 2

$ cat /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_US | grep week -A1
week    7;19971130;7
first_weekday	1
first_workday	2

I don’t know what the week variable does so would leave it unchanged at first.
