Bug Description

Binary package hint: language-pack-gnome-pt-base

The time format shown at the login screen for locale pt-PT is wrong. It should show a 24-hour format instead of a 12-hour format. The Gnome Clock applet shows the correct format after login. A patch is submitted which uses the 24-hour format for this locale (pt) in package language-pack-gnome-pt-base.

1) Output of 'lsb_release -rd':
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
Release: 10.04

2) Output of 'apt-cache policy gdm language-pack-gnome-pt-base':

3) The 24-hour clock format should be shown at the login screen for this locale (pt).
4) The 12-hour clock format is shown at the login screen for this locale (pt) instead. However after login, the Clock applet shows the correct format.

  [ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
  * debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
    - Make the first item in the system LANGUAGE list serve as default
      language for new users (LP: #740754).
    - Do not apply code for faking $GDM_LANG if it is the $USER's
      first login ever (LP: #740754).
    - Check $DESKTOP_SESSION instead of $GDMSESSION to determine if
      it is a guest session.

  * Add 41_pt_time_format.patch: Fix time format for Portugal. Thanks
