I have been going over the qml files but can't find the invocation of the qcalendarwidget there (though I may not have looked hard enough yet), it would be nice if we got the option in app-settings of the calendar to set the forstDayOfWeek property, in my locale it's Sunday and not Monday and wrapping the week view is a pretty annoying mind exercise...

Doesn't changing the locale do that? Or is your problem rather that your locale has the wrong info for you, as in different from what you want, and you're looking for a manual override?

Nope, I started jolla-calendar with LANG=he_IL.UTF-8 and all the different LC_* environment variables too, that just translated the interface partially but left the week starting on Monday.

It seems logical to me that this option should be possible to set regardless of a persons' locale since this is a preference that you may even want to change regardless of your locale.

@philippe-de-swert that setting rarely works properly, especially if you personal preference is a mix of many locales. If you lived in a few countries and speak a few languages then proper setting of locales starts to be really problematic.

agreed, I'm also annoyed at looking at monday as the first day of the week :P

What are the chances this will make it into 1.1.0.x or 1.1.x.y?

To all those interested in this, I patched jolla-calendar to support locale, the patch can be found here: https://github.com/Keeper-of-the-Keys/jolla-utils/tree/master/jolla-calendar

I hope Jolla will adopt the patch....

It seems that as of 2.0 respecting LC_TIME/locale was implemented!

There are no settings for it as far as I can tell, so you need to do that as described in the github patch but once you made the setting you will have a calendar that starts on the first day of the week that you like.
