Cannot change time - automatic change does not work
« on: April 01, 2019, 08:33:06 am »
How do I change time in Peppermint 19?

I am using live ISO with persistence. The automatic time change does not seem to work.

Make sure NTP is installed on your system:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ntp

I don't remember if it's installed on the .iso or not.

One problem with running a live .iso instead of an installed system is that you lose some root access. Root access is required to change the system time.

Hi maxy2, I just installed P 9 into a Sandisk Ultra Flair 3.0 with 150mb write speed. It's almost as fast as my desktop.
What was I thinking?

Hi - thanks for the replies.

The time and date has now re-adjusted itself after coming out of suspend/hibernation and rebooting.

I must try PM 9 on a very fast flash card - it's  even quite fast on the old usb 2 type cards.
