Re: How to set ISO date/time with en_US.utf8 as system default?

You are correct. typing locale in the virtual (text) console produces LC_TIME=en_DK. So GNOME is overriding PAM's environment.

Thank you so much for helping me discover this! I learned a lot in the process.

I do not use SSH and it says connection refused when I try.

when I open a virtual console, and type ncal, the calendar begins with
Monday--so this appears to be working.

The problem is with GNOME, then? I suppose Debian can't help with that?

Perhaps.  I'd still like to confirm that.

Press Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to a text console, and login there.  Do you
get a different result?  If you want to include the results in an
email, it might be helpful to redirect to a file:

locale > ~/locale.out

open a terminal if necessary
cat ~/locale.out
paste into email if necessary

If you get a different result on the text console, that is strong evidence
that GNOME is overriding PAM's locale environment variables, and then
you would need to do something in GNOME to get the change you want.
