Change time in Arch Linux + LXDE


Hey

I've got an Arch Linux + LXDE installation and the time is wrong. How can I configure the clock?

Regards
Casper.

How is your system setup? Is the BIOS clock set to UTC? If so, do you have your time zone set correctly in your /etc/rc.conf?

Hey, thanks for the quick answer.

- I'll check my BIOS in a minute.

My /etc/rc.conf is set correct.

LOCALE="da_DK"
HARDWARECLOCK="localtime"
TIMEZONE="Europe/Copenhagen"
KEYMAP=dk.map.gz
CONSOLEFONT=cp850-8x16
CONSOLEMAP=8859-15
USECOLOR="yes"

- Sorry, det BIOS was incorrect. It's fixed now. Thanks for the hint!

You need the date command. Use man date or date --help to see its usage. Google it if you want more detailed instructions.

Kinda googled everything which was related to LXDE and setting the clock, but since it has nothing to with LXDE I understand the issue.
