gnome menu pannel clock time problem


I cant seem to get the clock on my gnome menu bar to switch to the correct time.

The system time is correctly set when I type date.

I've tryed syncing the clocks with this command.
hwclock --systohc, --localtime

However it is not changing...

Any suggestions? Thanks!!

What's your timezone? And how wrong is the clock?

echo $TZ

Is it only gnome or does the shell, for example, also give the wrong time?

The timezone was not set properly as root, so I fixed that. The date in the shell is now correct for root. But as a regular user it is incorrect. The time in the gnome panel is the same as my user time (which is wrong). Now I guess I'll log out and back in and see if it fixes my user time.

OK.. still as a regular user the time is incorrect in both the shell and gnome panel. As root it is correct. Is there some configuration file I need to edit for the user?

have you tried resetting it via the gui? it might be easier that way: /usr/bin/system-config-date

Yes, I did that first. It made no difference. Hmmm..it's gotta be something really stupid..because it's happening to me.
