System Settings/Date & Time
In this configuration dialog you can set the system time and date. Because it is a system wide setting, you will be asked for the root password for any changes to take effect. In thetab, you can check the option and choose a public time server from the dropdown list. In this case your date and time will be set automatically. This requires an internet connection.
You can also set the date and time manually by deselecting theoption. You then either select the date from the calendar or enter it in the text field below the calendar. You set the time by clicking on the part (hour, minute, or second) that you want to change in the field below the clock, and then either change the value using the arrows or simply type the proper value.
In thetab, you can select the local time zone. Simply select the proper area from the list. You can write part of the name of the area, region, or comment in the text field above the list to restrict the number of choices.
