    I installed leopard a few days ago. I also installed the update of 10.5.1.

    I cannot set the date menu to have as first day Monday.
    I set it to ical, but when I double click to the date(finder bar) it still display me Sunday as the first day of the week.
    How can I do it? Is this a bug or I have to change other settings?

    You should be able to go to your iCal menu choose >> Preferences >> General >> Start week on....

    I just did that and it works fine. Remember to quit iCal and relaunch.

    If that doesn't work try gong to ~/Library/Preferences and drag com.apple.iCal.plist to your desktop and log out and back in or restart.

    I did what you said in ical.
    No luck at all.

    I also tried to find com.apple.iCal.plist in library/preferences but I cant find it!
    It does not exist!
    I search it in spotlight but it did not find it!

    I really don't understand. I want Monday to be as the first date not only on ical but in finder bar date/time menu too.

    Please help me find a solution

    Is it safe to find and download an ical.plist file to my mac?
    Will it help me at all?
    Why my system does not has it by default?

    Sorry, ~ stands for "Home". Users/yourHome/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist

    Now, I really don't understand. There is no calendar on the toolbar bar unless you are using some third party application. What are you using to place the calendar on your tool bar?

    EDit: Or, do you mean when iCal is open the "day/week/month" toolbar at the top of the calendar?

    I think the OP is talking about the calendar view in the Date and Time Pref pane.
    And no, I don't think you can change the first day of the week there. But honestly... How many times do you have to change the date and time your computer is set to?

    Cheers

    Yes, this is what I mean.

    I finally copied ical.plist in desktop. I restarted but nothing happened.

    I really do not understand why I cant do it when I had this feature in tiger.
    Why not in leopard?
