I am new to Kubuntu and I have an issue with the Digital Clock Widget.
First things first:
- I did install NTP
datetimectldoes say NTP Sync Yes and the Local Time is correct as well
$ timedatectl Local time: sáb 2016-02-06 21:30:02 VET Universal time: dom 2016-02-07 02:00:02 UTC RTC time: dom 2016-02-07 02:00:02 Time zone: America/Caracas (VET, -0430) Network time on: yes NTP synchronized: yes RTC in local TZ: no
However, ntpq shows just the following:
bbuske@bmstiL1:~$ sudo ntpq -np
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
18.104.22.168 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000 22.214.171.124 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000 126.96.36.199 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000 188.8.131.52 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000 184.108.40.206 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000
This is however not the main problem. The main problem is with the digital clock widget on the task bar. The hour displayed there, is off one hour. Like right now it says 10:52 PM while it is 09:52 PM.
I went into the setting and revised the time zone (VET - Venezuelan Standard Time), which is correct, we also do not have DST and there is no option to enable it.
Now: The strange thing is, that in the settings itself, the time shows correct and is set to auto sync. It appears to be a sole issue with the desktop clock. I have tried the analog widget and the other one and both seem to show the correct time.
So I wonder if there is any way to have this fixed? Is there any way to modify the widget? Or anything else I can try? Of course I could just use the system settings to manually set the time one hour back, then the time would show correct but the system time would then be false. Another solution I found is, set the time to GMT and then in the settings for additional time zones, de-select Caracas / Venezuela and and select a time zone named GMT -4,30. Then I could just change the displayed time on the task bar to that one.
However: I would like to have my general time set to VET not to GMT. In the general time and date settings there is just one Caracas / Venezuela. The additional Options like GMT -4.5 are not present there but only in the widget settings.
I have seen this link here where someone from Venezuela had the same issues. However, he claimed that this has been fixed which apparently is not the case for me.
Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
