This is sort of related to, but not quite the same as: Kubuntu 14.04 clock showing only UTC despite correct timezone
I have a laptop that only runs Kubuntu, I have the system clock set to use UTC, and the local Time Zone set to US NYC, which is the correct wat to have the system set up as I understand it. In the clock display settings window, I have the clock set to show 'local' time. However for some reason my clock often will display UTC instead of local time. If I go into the display settings window, I find that everything is still set right, and when I exit from the settings window the clock will show local time like it should...
This is doesn't seem to hurt anything but it is a pity to keep having to fix it...
One of the comments in the above mentioned article suggested grepping for "UTC" in the home directory, and finding it in ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc. I did this and found
[Containments][Applets][Configuration] announceInterval=0 calendarType=-1 dateStyle=2 defaultTimezone=Local displayEvents=false displayHolidays=true holidaysRegions=us_en-us holidaysRegionsDaysOff=us_en-us plainClockColor=0,0,0 plainClockDrawShadow=true plainClockFont=Ubuntu,20,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0 showSeconds=false showTimezone=true **timeZones=UTC timezone=Local** useCustomColor=true useCustomShadowColor=false
I haven't tried messing with this - should I?
Any suggestions to make my clock display always show local time?
