Some of you may recall a previous post
about the Time Zone settings in Deepin 2013 - the options were all set on hourly increments.
Well nobody on the Dev team took any notice of my post, the new 2014RC is still on hourly increments!
While South Australia might be an infinitesimal section of your market - our zone is GMT +9hr 30 mins - what about a major IT-aware country like India? India is 5:30 hours ahead of UTC. Most other Linux Distros seem to have been able to incorporate the right time zone information, now it is time for Deepin to get with it.
"Newfoundland, India, Iran, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Burma, Sri Lanka, the Marquesas, as well as parts of Australia use half-hour deviations from standard time, and some nations, such as Nepal, and some provinces, such as the Chatham Islands, use quarter-hour deviations."
The full listing of World Time Zones is at;
During Installation I correctly selected the Map option and located the cursor at Adelaide (our Capital) and it set everything up for Adelaide except it set the Time zone as +10 hours. It isn't, it is +9.5 hours.
Trying to adjust it once installed brings me nothing but grief. So many entries and nothing for Adelaide. Nothing other than hourly increments.
This time - before the RC is locked in place - can somebody please fix this problem?
