custom city timezones
This is the best I can do:
I would like to change LA to Santa Clara, London to Cambridge and Kolkata to Bangalore.
Is there anyway to accomplish this?

Basically you just pick one that's in the same zone as you are. I normally go with Chicago even though I'm no where near Chicago. It's in the Central Time Zone and that's really all that matters.

Sorry, I did not explain myself well.
The timezones are correct, I want to change the city name.

You have not given enough details like what distro you are using. What Desktop environment, or Window Manager, (which is what I use mostly. Like my screenshot shows. JWM).
Sector11 (Sector11) on deviantART

The little horizontal info bar in my screenshot is conky. It should be easy to find a canned setup that you can tweak for what you want.
Google is my friend when I needed yweather in JWM. It will be your friend for conky and different clock timezones.

If you have the gnome panel you can click on the time/calendar
expand locations > edit > +Add > location name > type your city
Santa Clara, Cambridge and Bangalore all show up and you get the weather info
as well: condition, temp, wind, sunrise and sunset times.

Thanks, but I am using opensuse and kde.
I tried looking for a weather plasmoid but could not find anything suitable.

Is it possible for you to fill the following table ?
+/- Local +/- UTC LA Santa Clara London Cambridge Kolkata Bangalore For example LA -10 from local -8 from UTC

Santa Clara UTC -8
Cambridge UTC 0
Bangalore UTC +5:30
You can work out your local difference, taking in consideration Summer Daylight Savings Time is UTC +1
