kde clock's local timezone is wrong


My computer timezone is set to MST (-7 GMT), which the "Adjust Date & Time..." dialog from the clock shows. However, if I choose the "Local Timezone" option to show, it is showing GMT (+7 hours ahead of my time).

Why is this not showing my local timezone of MST?

when you execute the `date` command in a command shell (xterm..) what do you get? if it also shows GMT, you need to change it via:

> ls /usr/share/zoneinfo
(Suppose you want to use either MST or one of the entries under MST7MDT if you observe DST, ...so if you use MST the command would be
> ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/MST /etc/localtime

Thanks for the info. I was using MST, so switched to MDT. With that said, KDE is still not showing the correct date.

#date
Mon Nov 29 19:54:51 MST 2004

KDE clock still shows 30.11.2004 2:54

did you reboot or restart X ? After that, right click on the clock and you will find lots of ways to configure the TZ specifically for that KDE app.

I thought I had, but I think maybe I still had a vncserver instance running. I shut them all down, and it seems to be working. Thanks
