tzdata not correct, lxde and razor-qt
« on: 2012/06/02, 13:53:42 »
I played with razor-qt for a few days on my netbook, but found too many features missing for my daily use, so I installed the LXDE release.  During installation, for both releases, I chose "America > Eastern" for the time zone.

On both cases, after rebooting the time came up GMT.

Interestingly, when I ran

Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

the utility came up already pointing to "America > New York" -- I did not need to change anything.  I only needed to highlight the "OK" boxes, and apply, and the displayed time was corrected. So I think maybe the /etc/localtime link is not made correctly, or something like that.
