Summary0017169: Unable to get weekday to show in shell Top Bar because the option is missing from GNOME Tweaks due to a version mismatch
DescriptionI'm unable to change some GNOME status bar settings due to a version mismatch between GNOME Shell and Tweaks versions that results in missing options. whereas in Debian 11 Alpha (most likely Fedora 31 too), which as of Feb 2020 uses matched Shell, Mutter, and Tweaks 3.32, and thus has the options present, I can get the day and month to show up here using Tweaks, but not the weekday.
Steps To ReproduceOpen GNOME "Tweaks" and click "Top Bar" on the left. There should be a "Weekday" option, but it's missing. Several other options appear to be missing too.
Additional InformationWorkaround: Open "dconf Editor", navigate to org.gnome.desktop.interface, and "clock-show-weekday" is present there.

My setup: CentOS 8.1 Core running inside a QEMU/KVM with a custom minimal GNOME setup that has just the applications I need for that instance. Assigned 1 processor core and 2 GB RAM (Theme shown in screenshot is "Adwaita Slim").

Possible solution: Copy and adapt contents of /gtweak/tweaks from upstream (or Fedora?) source (, however, pull the respective files and accompanying localisation files from branches that match versions of GNOME Shell and Mutter, as well as versions matching other packages depending on the contents of that tab.

Bug tracker category uses old CentOS 7 package name "gnome-tweak-tool" instead of current package name "gnome-tweaks"
