    Do you get the correct time when you type date in the console?

    so far i have had to use the command line tool date and time to change those. type man time in the command line. i havent however figured how to set it with the gui. maybe you need root access to do that.

    I am able to right click mine and change it in the GUI but that might be a kde thing.

    You can set the date from the cli. Try:

    date -s MMDDhhmm
