Ubuntu. Linux. The time. D: - May 22nd 2010, 10:32 AM

Okay, so every time I shut down my laptop, it changes the time back an hour. I'm using Ubuntu and I have recently updated. The time settings on my laptop keep changing. It's beginning to get really irritating having to change the time constantly. Does anybody know how to fix this? Thank you.

Try turning on/off the option that sets the hardware clock to UTC (can't give you directions unfortunately). Failing that turn off automatic daylight savings.

If you enter setup, while your computer is booting up, is the clock in the BIOS correct? If it's consistently changing back one hour, regardless to what time you set the clock within Ubuntu, (I may be wrong, I'm a Microsoft guy, but this is how it works in Microsoft NT platforms - that's NT, 2000, Server 2003, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008) it will automatically pull the time from your BIOS.

If it's progressivly setting it back an additional hour each shut down, let me know, that can be a tricky fix, but I can help you with it.

I've actually fixed this, so I guess the thread can be closed.

I'm glad you've sorted out the problem, Rie. Let me know if you need this re-opened.
