Time Zone Change


How do I change my time zone setting? Before I completed my registration, I realized too late that the default time zone was EST. I am in the Pacific Standard TimeZone (actually Pacific Daylight Time Zone to be technical). I don't see anywhere in my Profile page where I can correct my mistake. Can anyone help, please. Thank you.

Welcome to LQ!
You should be able to switch your profile's TZ setting at https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=editoptions
after logging in, of course.

There used to be a tzconfig command to do that. There's old school ways of adjusting /etc/timezone and /etc/localtime. And newer ways like dpkg-reconfigure tzdata depending on your distro.

Probably he meant timezone for his LQ profile, not for linux machine

Click on the "My LQ" button, and on the left side, find the Edit Options link. There you can change the time zone setting.
