Ubuntu :: Conky Clock And Top Panel Clock Not In Sync

I'm using a very simple conky script to diplay the date and time on my desktop. I've noticed that he conky clock is a few seconds early compared to the time displayed in the right hand side of the top panel (Natty). I guess both displays are based on the same "internal" time, so I'm left wondering how this could happen, and how to sync back the clocks.

It seems that Conky is in sync with the system date, while the panel clock is 2 seconds late (on my system). Checked with while true; do date; sleep 0.1; done

Ubuntu :: 11.04 : Conky Clock Is Not Sidplaying Correctly
I just installed conky and followed a set of instructions to get the NightDrive theme setup. Everything looks alright except that some of the text and the clock are off. Been experimenting with different values but I am not really knowledgeable in coding as of yet. Anyone give me an idea of where in the conkyrc I can adjust the x, y for the clock?

Ubuntu :: Default Panel Clock Shows Up On Middle Of Screen When Moved To Bottom Panel?
I have had this problem with all installations of Maverick Meerkat. Moving the default clock from the upper panel to the lower panel makes it bahave strangely. When clicked on, it now appears in the middle of the screen (sometimes even higher depending on resolution). This never happened prior to Maverick Meerkat.

How do I go about to fix this strange bug?

Attached is a screen shot of what I mean.

Software :: Unable To Get A Simple Atomic Clock Sync
I have this hdd and another with XP in it but when ever I chnage to UBuntu, the clock goes out of whack and, makes me manually change it whereas in my XP I have an atomic clock installed that I just click on 'Ping' and she's right. I've looked at heaps of downloads for similar on here but, I haven't found a free one other than a trial type that I'm not interested in, that works so, why is Linux so difficult in this regard? I will accept all the help I can get on here because I like the thought of being able to get away from Microsoft.

Debian :: Sync Clock - NTPD Not Starting On Boot
I'm trying to sync my clock. I think I would like to do this by the "ntpd" daemon running. I think it should start up on boot, but it doesn't.

I have the following in my /var/log/syslog:
Jul 18 23:44:14 neo ntpd[1780]: ntpd 4.2.6p2@1.2194-o Sun Oct 17 13:45:13 UTC 2010 (1)
Jul 18 23:44:14 neo ntpd[1781]: proto: precision = 0.634 usec
Jul 18 23:44:14 neo ntpd[1781]: unable to bind to wildcard address - another process may be running - EXITING
Jul 18 23:44:14 neo ntpdate[1194]: step time server offset -0.505108 sec

Other posts say if ntpd and ntpdate run too close together, they cause one to think the other is locking a resource. It works to type "ntpdate" to manually update the clock. My Debian version is squeeze (6.0.2)

It works to start the ntpd daemon manually:
... sudo /etc/init.d/ntp start
... Starting NTP server: ntpd.

CentOS 5 :: Get Rid Of Virtual Clock And Use Physical Clock?
I had cloned a centos 5.6 installation from virtualbox virtual machine to physical box. Everything work fine. However, the time showing in os using date command differs from bios time by roughly 4 hours. I am running ntp services which sync the time with another centos server on the network. It appears that some services are using virtual clock and some use physical clock. How do I get rid of virtual clock and only use physical clock?

Ubuntu :: Panel Clock Doesn't Update
The clock applet "Clock 2.30.0" in my panel reads correctly on boot, and then never updates itself. When I go to its preferences, time setting is correct and continuously updating, but the display in my panel never changes. I can use "killall-gnomepanel" from terminal, and this rests everything, making the time display correctly. Furthermore, it updates itself afterward... but I'd like the dang thing to function correctly without resorting to that.

OpenSUSE :: Clock On Panel Dissapeared
There is no clock on my panel after the 11.3 install. I don't get it. I unlock the widgets and there is a digital clock there, but I cannot drag it to the panel, only the desktop. So I suppose there is another way of adding it. The standard clock is not a widget?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Add 'Alarm Clock Applet' To Panel
I must be overlooking something here, but I can't find out how to add "Alarm Clock Applet" to my panel. In Ubuntu Software Center, there's a picture of the program right in the panel and feature to add to panel, but there's no option for me to do this. "Add to Panel" doesn't have the application either.

Ubuntu :: Get The Gnome Panel Clock To Work Correctly
I recently installed 10.10, and I have not been able to get the gnome panel clock to work correctly. I will set it to the correct time, but every time I reboot it will be wrong by several hours. I have never had a problem in previous versions and I have always set the clock by right-clicking on the clock -> Preferences ->Time Settings. Am I doing something wrong or is there an easy way to synchronize with a time server?

Ubuntu :: Won't Gnome Panel Clock Show Local Time / Why Is So?
When I travel, I would like to tell my laptop that I, as a user, am in a different time zone that what the OS may think is local. And I would like the clock on my desktop (default Gnome bar date/time display) to show the local time.

Instead, I currently have to use sudo and change the system time... (click on the clock, choose time settings, set system time -- there are no other choices given). The applet thing allows me to add other locations, but they only show up if I click on the icon, as extra times below the main one.

Am I missing something? Using the wrong app?

Fedora :: GNOME Clock Applet In Bottom Panel
I'm experiencing a strange problem with GNOME Clock on Fedora 13. When the applet is in the bottom panel, and I click on the clock, the popup display appears at the top of the screen rather than at the bottom of the screen (above the bottom panel) as would be expected. Worse, the display appears higher than would be expected had the clock been on the top panel, meaning the display is cutoff (ie, the display goes off the top of the screen). I've tried playing with my .gconf files, and removing and re-adding the GNOME Clock applet, but nothing has worked. I'm not sure if this is a weird quirk particular to my settings, or a more general bug; can readers here check to see if the behavior I've described occurs if the Clock applet is added to the bottom panel?
