I have an earlier question at How do I turn off the automatic update of the system time on. My problem was not resolved but it was recommended that I repost with this question.
My understanding is that with Ubuntu 16.04.2, timedatectl should be available to turn the system clock off and back on. Currently, when I run:
timedatectl set-ntp false
I get the following message:
Failed to set ntp: The name org.freedesktop.timedate1 was not provided by any .service files
My guess is that I must install some additional software, but that is only a guess and I don't know what software, if any, is missing. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.2 and using openbox with it.
