OK, I am sure this is a stupid question, but here goes:
I've installed Linux Mint 14 in a VM (not sure if this matters), and no matter what I do, I cannot get the date and time to change from what it is set as. I am signed in as an administrator, I have tried using the Cinnamon Calendar settings, the Date and Time settings within the standard System Settings, and I've installed the gnome-time-admin tool as well, all with no luck. I've tried using network time, and I've tried setting it manually as well. My time zone looks to be set up correctly.
What am I missing here? Thanks in advance.
