View Full Version : [ubuntu] Won't let me set correct time

September 11th, 2008, 11:45 AM
Tried everything and still shows date two days in advance. Otherwise, every thing else works fine, browser, media player, fast loading of web pages, etc.

This is one way of doing it: (from a terminal/shell)

1) open a terminal/shell
2) Set the new date: (You need to do this as an privileged user "root", thats why using "sudo")

sudo date -s "11 SEP 2008 13:00:00"
3) Done.

Best regz,
