My two Ubuntu desktops updated their time for daylight savings time but my laptop did not. I am not sure the difference. They are all set to get their time "Automatically from the Internet" and are on the same time zone. How do I get the laptop to update and continue to stay in sync using the Internet?
I am using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, 64-bit version.
All three dual-boot Ubuntu 14.04 and Windows 7 though I have not booted any of them in Windows in several weeks/months. I set these machines up several months ago so I am not certain but I intended that they all be set to use UTC time (following this link to make sure Windows cooperates). I just opened
/etc/default/rcS on the laptop and one of the desktops and they both have
UTC=no set so that seems not to be the case. Looking at the system time on the laptop I get:
>>> sudo hwclock --show Wed 11 Mar 2015 06:33:13 AM EDT -0.188065 seconds
while for one of the desktops I get:
>>> sudo hwclock --show Wed 11 Mar 2015 11:32:56 AM EDT -0.219271 seconds
and it is just after 11:30 AM EDT (3:30 PM UTC) as I type this. Comparing those results, it seems the the desktop is on local time while I don't know what the laptop is on as
EST = UTC - 5 and
EDT = UTC - 4.
How would I update each system to in fact be on UTC time (I intend to follow this to make sure Windows does not change things)?
