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.
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.
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.
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 set my location, but Debian displays DATE in some messed format. I would expect such neat OS to recognize all those local settings based on my location, but that's not the case. It seems that Debian follows locale settings by set language (which is en_us in my case, as I guess in majority uses) or this format is default in any case
I would like to set date/time to DD.MM.YY. hh:mm:ss, and programs that display date data to follow this setting. Simply put, in Windows there is Control Panel and you set location, then OS uses some regional settings, like currency, separators, date/time format.
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.
Ive a little problem in xen guest machines. The hardware UTC time is grather than the insanity time (ntp doesnt works) and I cant change the date and time from yast. I can`t access the hwclock information (errno=19) unable to get /dev/rtc.
I have the application and kernel module running on my system. In the meantime, I am changing the date and time of the system. However, this change doesn't reflect on log messages of the application that's being executed.
I frequently travel between San Diego and Boston. I am able to add "Locations" to Gnome's Clock applet, which seems like it should take care of time zone information (see attached screenshot). However, I can't figure out how to set one (or the other) as my current location so that it will update my time zone information.
I'd like to change a files modification date "only" without changing the time. I'm aware of the 'touch' command but is seems like it only allows changing both the date and time, and not one of them. Any ideas on an easy way to change a file's modification date without also changing its time? (I have a long list of files and thus would like to run one to command to change them all)Example: Change a file's (month) timestamp from "2010-09-23 11:59:23" to "2010-10-23 11:59:23"Background: I accidentally set the wrong month on my camera and ended up with all photos having a modification timestamp with the wrong month.
I have a Lucid machine that is driving me bonkers by constantly locking the desktop screen, forcing me to enter my password each time to unlock it. I have looked everywhere but cannot find out where to change this setting.
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.
Suddenly the date and time applet disappeared from my top panel. I have checked out Compiz Setting Manager and asked google but without success. Does anybody know how to tackle this one? For those who have not got 11.04 yet: right click on the panel does not give you a choice of applets in 11.04 as it was in 10.10.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and I noticed that the top panel shows an incorrect date. The time is ok, but there are some problems with the date. It keeps changing (maybe a day every 5 min) and at the moment i'm writing this message, it shows 42 July (I'm serious, look at the screenshoot I made). If I choose date and time option from the System>Administration, I can see the correct date there. I tried to change it from there, but the top panel doesn't change. Could anyone give me a hand?

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.
So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior
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.
