It seems that while booting in persistent live USB, the wrong time (GMT / UTC instead of local) is displayed (at least that's what happens in Lubuntu 12.10).

Answer from HERE

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

After executing this, ensure the correct timezone was selected, then set this command to be run automatically and non-interactively at startup by adding it to System -> Preferences -> Sessions -> Add -> Command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -f noninteractive tzdata

Although in Lubuntu I was not able to add new staff to session, the settings made with first command seem persistent.
