[Solved] Time problem

Postby alopez » Nov 14th, '20, 21:44

Today the timezone package was updated and since that moment, gnome is showing a wrong time (1 hour more than the actual time), however, date and datetimectl show the right time.

$ timedatectl
Local time: sáb 2020-11-14 20:28:18 CET
Universal time: sáb 2020-11-14 19:28:18 UTC
RTC time: sáb 2020-11-14 20:28:17
Time zone: Europe/Paris (CET, +0100)
System clock synchronized: no
NTP service: active
RTC in local TZ: yes


I guess the problem comes from the timezone. It is correct in the above example (CET), but gnome tells me I'm in the CEST timezome (Europe summer) and the shown time is coherent with this time (UTC+2).

My laptop is showing the right time, but I didn't upgrade the timezone package.


Any one else facing this problem? Any idea? Should I open a ticket?

Gnome time not correct - an hour ahead

Postby aj001 » Nov 17th, '20, 09:10

Hello list,
Gnome 3.32.2 is some reason an hour ahead of system time.
On terminal time shows ok, like Tue 17 Nov 2020 09:04:20 AM EET, but gnome shows Nov 17 10:04
Mageia kernel is now
Linux linux.local 5.7.19-desktop-3.mga7 #1 SMP Sun Oct 18 15:46:00 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It happens to me too.

I check, the system has the clock and timezone right:

Tue 17 Nov 2020 08:49:37 AM CET

But Gnome insists that Rome is CEST (daylight saving time) so it sets UTC+2 instead of UTC+1. I tried to unselect automatic time zone but I see no “world slice” with UTC+1 to select! England is at GTM and every country east of that become UTC+2!

I now set my time to the Canary Islands so the time is UTC+1 correctly but this is a serious problem right now.

I found there's a bug open for this

https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27609

We need to wait for timezone update. Or set our gnome clock to the Canary Islands for now. (if you don't know how to pick them, they are off the coast of west Africa, just west of the Sahara desert)

Warning, my solution about using Canary Islands will mess up system time! I reverted back to Europe/Rome from the time being.

If you want to install the “testing” packages, you have to use this command line as root or with sudo (if you have that enabled):

Code: Select all
urpmi --media Core\ Updates\ Testing glib2.0-common lib64glib2.0_0 lib64glib2.0-devel lib64gio2.0_0 glib-gettextize timezone timezone-java

FWIW, I've merged this into the already existing thread about the same issue.
