There are two time standards: localtime and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
The localtime standard is dependent on the current time zone, while UTC is the global time standard and is independent of time zone values.
Most Of My Servers runs on Open Source Platform called Linux.
The initial value of the system clock is calculated from the hardware clock, dependent on the contents of .
After boot-up has completed, the system clock runs independently of the hardware clock.
The tutorial below is applicable to both of them and can be used in any DE, even without an X server.
system and service manager and allows you to review and change the configuration of the system clock.
If you want to be sure that the time on your Linux Mint PC is accurate, you might want to set it to update automatically from special time servers on the Internet.
To do this, you need to configure the Linux Mint operating system properly. RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance Software manager and look for this package. In the screenshot below, I have it installed: If your setup does not have it, then install the ntpdate package."ntpdate" is a lightweight package which can be used to obtain time from the Internet using NTP (network time protocol). Unlike Cinnamon, other desktop environments offer a different way to sync time via NTP or do not have a GUI at all.
As a result, we were seeing a bunch of “clock skew” warnings when building our code.
To fix the problem, I figured out how to use NTP on a private network.
The next step depends on the desktop environment you are using in Linux Mint. If you have the ntpdate package installed, all you need to do is turn on the appropriate setting in System Settings (Control Center). Two other popular desktop environments for Linux Mint are MATE and XFCE.
While MATE comes with an option to sync time and date with Internet servers, it requires another package, ntp, which is a full featured NTP server.
Thankfully, updating time zone information is easy to do.
