I've got fedora 11 set up to use network time protocol to sync my laptop's date & time when I'm on-line. The question is simple really, I've added a local universality's time server (what is public) and it's live. but it's added to the end of the default time servers what come with fedora. How do I get fedora to just use the local time server, is it a case of removing the default time servers for fedora, but there is a box what says advanced options which are. sync system clock before starting service ???? & use Local time source (( is that the same as the local ntp server that I've got set up ))Hope some body can help me with the network time protocol part of Date/Time settings.
I have two major issues, and one minor one, after I started using Ubuntu, I tried searching the forum for them, but couldn't find anything relevant to my problems.First issue: Screenshots and the cursor.This is probably a very easily fixed issue, but none-the-less, I can not figure it out.How do I NOT include the cursor in my screenshots on Ubuntu 9.10?What I do is, I press the Prt Scrn button, and my cursor is always there in the image, and I don't want that.Second is pidgin.I love it, but every time I boot it up, my friendly name is reverted back to firefoxfag.I think it has something to do with me using gmail for msn, but I'm not sure...Also, as a last very small issue, the global hotkeys on audacious don't respond unless i open preferences, open settings for global hotkeys, then close down the settings..
I installed my linux os in vmware.I need to set time of virtual machine to later time( 2005 ).I have an application whose license expires at 2006 so I have to do this in order for it to work .but when I change it it comes back to the current time ,so what is the solution for this .
If one right-clicks on the date and time tab in Ubuntu 10.10 desktop, then there is no obvious way to change the time. If one right-clicks and goes to help, then the explanation for changing time is as follows under the category 'usage':
2.3. To Adjust the System Date or Time.
To adjust the system date or time that the Clock applet displays, perform the following steps:
1. Right-click on the applet, then choose Adjust Date & Time.
2. Type the root password, then click OK.
3. The Clock applet starts the system tool that sets the system date and time. Use the tool to adjust the date and time.
The actual way to do this is as follows:
Right-click on the date and time applet. select preferences, and down at the bottom of the window that opens push the 'time settings' button.
Then you will be able to adjust that date and time.
I've noticed that every time this desktop is turned on the date & time are as they were the last time I used it, and then have to put in the correct date & time again (this is why I chose the word 'persistent' within the tittle). When I try to change those have to write in the password for the date as well as for the time as if 'login-in' once were not enough! What I want to know is how to put in the date & time and receive the correct amounts the next time I turn the unit on again, as it should be? Do I've to open a terminal & do it with administrator's authority/credentials?
ubuntu 10.10 64bit my system clock keeps running late, and for some reason, I can't use NTP to synchronize it.If I try to use System -> Preferences -> Administration -> Time and date I can't unlock the popup (see attached screenshot) - I can click on the little yellow lock icon but when I do so, nothing happens.I tried "sudo ntpdate..." but i get the "the NTP socket is in use, exiting" error.
how to change the style of the time and date shown on the panel for Karmic Koala? As shown on my attached screenshot located at the upper right corner, it does not show the year which is a bit vexing and I cannot figure it out how to change it.
Just bought a refurb PC900 and also now have a SDHC Flash with Ubuntu 10.4 netbook remix on it so that I can boot from it. I am having a problem that the UNR shows the time and date 5 hours behind the real time. The notebook BIOS is correct. When I try to set the time and date it goes back to the original time that was set before withing a few seconds. I set up a new user with administrator full access but that did not solve the issue. I have also tried setting up Ubunto One but my system does not act like the directions online. Can I get files from my non-ubunto pc to my PC900? It seems only one way to me right now.
I've been trying to make Ubuntu comply with the ISO 8601 date & time standard, but to no avail. Here are the workarounds tried 1.Added LC_TIME="en_DK.UTF-8" to /etc/default/locale 2.Added LC_TIME="en_DK.UTF-8" to /etc/environment 3.Replaced /usr/lib/locale/en_US.utf8/LC_TIME with /usr/lib/locale/en_DK.utf8/LC_TIME.
I'm using ubuntu Maverick on a Dell 1545 and I'm pretty much a newbie to ubuntu. Most of the things have been fine so far, I just plugged it into a proxyless internet connection and adjusted my location for time zone (I've been using a porxy server previously for internet which didn't allow changes in location and time zone work) and since then that calendar has moved out of the scope on the top right corner of my screen and I'm unable to move it.
I'm trying to change the time stamps on a bunch of pictures in the same directory, because several cameras were used, some of them with the wrong time zone.exiftool seems to be the correct package to use, but it doesn't seem to work.
The following command seems to be the recommended way to subtract 1 hour from all .JPG files in the directory, but the exif data in the file and even the time stamps don't change.
I want to change the Date and Time of the system from my application. This can be done using the "Date -s" linux command. But the application has to be executed as root/sudo. is it possible that root can give permission to normal user to execute the "Date -s" command?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 and am very happy with it. However I have this problem with the Gnome panel which does not keep the date and time up to date. I can see that the system has the right date and time but it seems to get stuck on the Gnome panel. I have researched, ntp, ntpd, ntpupdate, tried all the tricks. Not sure what to do next.
My date and time is not syncing correctly. I have 2 opensuse 11.1 servers and on both when you adjust the time in yast, I go back into yast and the setting for the NTP server is not set and "manual" is checked. I tried many times and the setting keeps reverting back. I always click on Save NTP configuration.
I was wondering if anyone has discovered a way of either using cron or by custom scripting, to run a script at a certain date and time only once. The purpose would be to make one-off changes to dns zone files, or to virtual host configs on an apache server, or changing any type of text file at say 12:01am rather than waking up at 12:01am (when our maintenance windows start) to make changes to production servers.
I have just updated to karmic. For some odd reason, the time/date indicator on the top panel now spreads the data over two lines, rather than placing them side by side. There doesn't seem to be any option in the preferences program to control this.
This means that the panel cannot be reduced below a two line minimum. Not only have I lost desktop space, but the panel icons have expanded to suit the new thicker panel.
The code runs fine and Ubuntu loads also from the ISO stored in the C: drive of my system.
The problem is when Ubuntu loads it changes my clock time. I have set the timezone to Indian Standard Time. Since it is live CD it should not make any changes in the system however, it does change the Data/Time of my system.
