Ubuntu – Monday as first day in Gnome-Shell (instead of Sunday)


I've been dealing with different regional settings (US, Canada and other locations in English, as well as other countries and languages), but I cannot get Gnome-shell Calendar to begin with Monday, instead of Sunday (see image). I have even modified the en_US file in /usr/share/i18n/locales/ (line: first workday: 1). All without success. My question is if it is hard-coded in Gnome-shell or it can be changed.

Answers to this previous question doesn't apply to Gnome-shell.

To adjust this, change or add the following lines in the LC_TIME section in /usr/share/i18n/locales/<your_locale>:

week            7;19971130;5
first_weekday   2
first_workday   2

And then update the system:

sudo locale-gen
