Postby rmcellig » Mon Dec 05, 2011 9:39 am

I am using mint 11 LXDE and noticed that my time is wrong. How do I change the time zone?

Open Preferences from the Mint Menu and click on Time and Date. Change the options there.

I am in LXDE and I don't see Time and Date when I select the Preferences menu.

Install gnome-time-admin, and use sudo time-admin in the terminal to launch it, or launch from run by searching for time-admin.

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,
