where are the decisive data for time to find in Debian

If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

where are the decisive data for time to find in Debian

Postby oui » 2017-04-03 19:15

Hi

I live in Europe.

I have 2 full install on my PC: Lubuntu minimal 64 bit rel. 17.04RC and Debian9.0RC 64 bit.

we did have last month our summer time changing.

Ubuntu did adapt itself the time correctly.

Debian not. The time is wrong since this date and stay wrong and will probably stay wrong all the summer time until the next time changing for the winter :roll:

I will check the data concerning time in both, Ubuntu and Debian.

Which files in (probably) /etc oder /usr/share are concerned?

Kind regards

Did you set a timezone without daylight saving time?
Code: Select all
cat /etc/timezone

Don't modifiy this file manually! You can change the timezone with tzselect.
Have a nice day!

Thank you very much!

But

cat /etc/timezone
Europe/Brussels


hm... I live 100 km from Brussels it is also absolutely correct.

But the time is completely wrong in the tray from LXQT (2 hours to early! I see 11h33 but it is really 13h33). That was not the problem. It is the reason of my precise question again:

Which files (all files having to do with time!!!) are concerned by time!

Ubuntu has the good right time (before and after the time changing from last week to the European Summer time) in the tray of LXQT.

Debian has 2 hours difference with that right time newly. Before that (it is a relatively fresh installation: I did think "let it so, perhaps you have to change more after the permutation of time!" and it is so) it did have 1 hour difference. So I conclude the time base is wrong AND the permutation to the European Summer time did not happen!

If I compare ALL files in Ubuntu and Debian, I will automatic find what happens as Ubuntu is wright!

is one of the machines dual booting with windows?
is ntp used on the machines (or its newer equivalent systemd-timesyncd)?

Right click the clock in the panel. Configure "Date & time". Uncheck the Checkbox "Use UTC".
Have a nice day!
