Re: Unable to modify time and date (Precise unity desktop)
These are of the most undocumented annoyances in Linux. Therefore I have a file for this containing the commands to (correctly) set the system clock.
Get your current date as provided by the system. Adjust it's output to the correct date. And fill this in below after the --set="". Make sure to keep the "-signs intact!
Substitute and run.
sudo date --set="Sat Aug 25 11:41:19 CEST 2012"
Copy systemclock to the hardwareclock.
sudo hwclock --systohc --utc
And finally reboot.
