Change time in Mint13 XFCE [Solved]

Postby keithp on Mon Jul 23, 2012 4:01 pm

I'm trying the live CD of Mint13 XFCE.

The 'time' in the panel is UTC and I want to change it to 'local time' (actually, UTC+1), but can't find a way of doing it.

XUbuntu has Applications->System->Time + Date to change it, but this appears to be missing in Mint.

How do I change it, please?

Many thanks.

Keith

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Not sure if what you need...
I'm still using 'RC' also with 'MintMenu' :wink:

administration>time and date

Edit sorry that one actually came in the 'mate-system-tools' I installed for adding users (with a GUI) :oops:

Many thanks for your reply.

Another thread has appeared, with the same problem.

I used the command suggested in that thread:

sudo date -s 14:07 (but, of course, I substituted the current time for 14:07).

Logged out and back in, and the time is now correct.
