Clock Always Shows Wrong Timezone


I'm running FC2 on my laptop and my clock always shows me Los Angeles time when I boot up. My time zone is set correctly (MST) and is set as the Local time zone, but for some reason I have to right-click and manually select the Local time zone every boot.

Any idea what I need to do to have it display the Local time zone by...well....default?

Thanks

Jon

Try the command "tzselect" and see if that helps. It enables you to specify your correct time zone and set the environment variable correctly for it.

If that doesn't work I'll show you what I put manually in my .bash_profile file a long time ago, which worked. But I don't know the names to use for your location....
