when I go to change the date and time it doesn't work, and I try to unlock but it just won't unlock, if there is any way to make it work please help. I know it isn't very descriptive but I really would like some answers. thank you
In 12.04 I don't have to Unlock anything. Just click on the clock on the top bar, and choose Time & Date Settings, once the Time & Date window opens, choose Manually, so you can change the time and date manually; otherwise choose your time zone from the map, and choose Automatic.
I had similar issue on my install and the above command gave this error:
date: the argument '19 Sep 2014 20:11:00' lacks a leading '+'; when using an option to specify date(s), any non-option argument must be a format string beginning with '+' Try 'date --help'
Help shows -
Usage: date [option]... [+FORMAT] - (etc)
Added the required plus as indicated to render
+19 Sep 2014 20:11:00 which worked.
