I'm running GNOME evolution 2.24.3 on xubuntu 8.10 and the dates in
the Calendar appear in US format, i.e. MM/DD/YYYY.  I'm in the UK and
want European format dates - DD/MM/YYYY.

My locale is set to en_GB.UTF-8 and nothing else seems to get the date
format wrong, I've just checked Orage for example and that definitely
says today is 25/02/2009 whereas Evolution thinks it's 02/25/2009.

Is there any way to fix this or is it a bug?

If you are running xubuntu I presume you aren't running a Gnome desktop
- you need to tell gconf what the locale is as that's where Evo gets
it's information from.

I'll leave someone else to tell you how to do it as I can't remember,
