Miss set clock

Fri Apr 27, 2018 11:31 pm

The clock and date is wrong on my Pi-top. It is not allowing me to do many things as a result. The internet did generate a button but when clicked nothing happened. I could not find a way to change it either. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have your set your time zone correctly?
Likely you will need to search for help on the pi-top website and/or forums (if any). https://pi-top.com/
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPiOS Buster w/ Desktop OS.

Please post the output from a timedatectl command (run in an LXTerminal window).

I have this problem as well and I still cannot get my PI to pickup the time from internet servers. I think I have the raspi-config options set correctly but stll no go. For now I use a command line string like;

sudo date --set '2018-04-28 12:00:00'

You might try this:

Code: Select all

$ lynx -dump time.is |
awk '/Time in/ {getline;t=$0} /day/ { system("set -x;sudo date -s \047" $0 " " t "\047");exit}'
$

I get the following ouput:

Local time: Sat 2018-04-28 18:19:29 CDT
Universal time: Sat 2018-04-28 23:19:29 UTC
RTC time: n/a
Time zone: SystemV/CST6CDT (CDT, -0500)
Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: no
RTC in local TZ: no

I have no idea if any of this is normal. I obviously have a lot to learn. Lol.

If you managed to paste that within four minutes of grabbing the cut from your system then your clock is set perfectly.
