Description Vlado 2013-05-04 09:42:37 UTC
Yestarday I updated my laptop from kubuntu 12.10 to 13.04 and now I can't set up exact time based on timezone. I'm on CEST and time on my laptop is constantly going to UTC. I set up my timezone to Europe/Skopje, in /etc/timezone value is also Europe/Skopje but i must manualy adjust time +2 hours on every boot. In system setting I'm checking "Set date and time automatically" box, when I click on apply it become grey for 30 seconds and then box is unchecked again. I didn't have this problem on 12.10

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Adjust the time manualy to +2 hours
2. Set the timezone to Europe/Skopje
3. Reboot
Actual Results:  
Time is back to UTC

Expected Results:  
Time to be at CEST

Also I noticed that when I change timezone to Europe/Sarajevo (which is also CEST, GMT+2) and check the box for Automatically set time and date, clock on the system tray is adjusting to correct time, but on System setting remains the same. Also in bash with the command "date" it is still showing the wrong time and timezone is UTC. And when I adjust manually the clock in system settings two hours ahead, on system tray clock goes +4 hours, and on bash get the correct time but still with wrong timezone (UTC). It's a complete mess.

I solved this issue with:
date --set="2 JUN 2013 18:00:00"
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
Now clocks in terminal and kdeclock are synchronized

Yes Vlado, it creates a new /etc/localtime like i said in https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=317999#c7 directly without symlink, but if you enter in clock settings, it messed again the file and the problem comes back.
