I’m new to Antergos. I’m running Xfce. The command below does not correct my computer time. I live in America’s central time zone UTC -6:00 and it’s daylight savings time. So my clock is 5 hours too far ahead. It says it’s 11:22 PM and it’s only 6:22 PM here.
The following command taken from an older thread in this forum does not fix it.
timedatectl set-ntp true
Here’s some more info:
$ timedatectl status Local time: Sat 2017-04-01 23:29:41 UTC Universal time: Sat 2017-04-01 23:29:41 UTC RTC time: Sat 2017-04-01 23:29:41 Time zone: UTC (UTC, +0000) Network time on: yes NTP synchronized: yes RTC in local TZ: no
Update: I fixed this problem by going here: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=System_Time_Setting
Here are the exact steps I executed:
(no sudo required here) All that did was show me my clock was wrong! Next:
sudo pacman -S ntp sudo timedatectl set-ntp true
Then I had to find out what my time zone is actually called with this command:
(no sudo required here) Which in my case was America/Chicago. In your case you will have to see the output of the above command to know the acceptable name of the time zone you live in.
Next I did this to correct my computer time:
sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/Chicago
Again, replace “America/Chicago” with the name of your particular timezone.
Now to check the system “took” the time, I used this command (no sudo required) and got this output:
$ timedatectl status Local time: Sat 2017-04-01 18:43:53 CDT Universal time: Sat 2017-04-01 23:43:53 UTC RTC time: Sat 2017-04-01 23:43:53 Time zone: America/Chicago (CDT, -0500) Network time on: yes NTP synchronized: yes RTC in local TZ: no
Which shows that my time was set correctly, even if on my panel it still said the wrong time. To correct, I close everything and did a reboot. When I came to my login screen, I was presented with the correct time. At last!
