Re: Changing time zone

Don't want to bump such a topic but I really wanted to say thank you...
Clicking "Date and Time" settings on the clock in the taskbar couldn't help me to change the time (changes were always discarded) but this command time-admin really fixed the problem for me.
Cheers guys,
