Clock Settings - How To Update/Change

Can't change the clock settings. Apparently others have had some problem.

Any help is appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

"Can't"? Does this mean you can't find where to change the clock settings? Or when you try to change the clock settings you get some sort of error message? Also are you on zorin os core or lite?


On zorin os core, you would open the Settings app and click on the search thing on the top left, search "time" and open the "date & time" section. From here you can change the timezone, time format, and set a specific time if needed.

I'm on Lite and after I go through the above the time still won't change.

I don't know what it could be.

Many thanks in advance

@Stanko1 Could you please update your forum profile to indicate to us that you are using ZorinOS Lite. That will reduce teh need to repeatedly ask you which OS edition you are using.

I do not have Lite, but are your Regional settings correct for your timezone.


On Zorin OS Lite, right click the clock on the panel and select Properties
In the properties window, click Time and Date Settings

If you do not have the clock on the panel:
In the app menu, click Settings
Scroll to the bottom of the Settings window to Time and Date


Maybe this is a stupid reply but maybe you can't change date and time on Settings > Date and time because Automatic date and time is enabled, only after disabling it you can change date and time manually.

Did it manually earlier to no avail.

If that is not working, let's check my trick for cheating on Fallout Shelter.
Is your output in terminal correct for:


Ensure youa re in the right timezone:

timedatectl list-timezones

You can set time in H(our):M(inute):S9econd) format (replace HH:MM:SS with the actual hours mins and secs)

timedatectl set-time HH:MM:SS

I just wanna put this here just in case someone is having the time problem especially they're dual-booting Windows and Linux.
