Newbie Help With Date & Time
I have read chapter 16 on Time in the Debian sysadmin manual but I am still confused.
When I run the date command I have the correct UTC time returned. However, I am in EST timezone and in my /etc/timezone file it says America/New York which is also correct.
I am running kde for my desktop and the clock shows the UTC time, not EST. When I try and change the timezone through the Control Center to EST it will not change the clock.
Basically, my pc is stuck on UTC time and I can't figure out how to change it. I know I can reset the time using the date command but as soon as I reboot I will lose the setting. What I want to do is have the hardware clock set to UTC (which I think it is) and have the desktop set to localtime (EST). I know this must be a simple solution but I can't figure out what file/s to change.
Can anyone help?
