Time is wrong after boot (Mint 18.1 KDE)

Post by jake86us » Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:34 am

hey guys,

I'm having trouble with Linux Mint 18.1 KDE, setting the right time when I login to my computer. I'm duel booting Windows 10 and Mint KDE. I have checked the time setting in BIOS and have made sure that the automatic time setting in Mint is checked too. What could be the reason that its not checking the time in BIOS or the Internet for the correct time? My computer is a Dell Inspiron 11 3000, if that helps any.

thanks for any help you may have,
Jake

This will help if you are comfortable with the command line

I did it using the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo timedatectl set-local-rtc 1
It's a lot easier than forcing Windows to cope.
