Change Timezone in Ubuntu

If you want to change the timezone in Ubuntu, there is an easy text-based menu-driven way to do so.

  • From the CLI type:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

  • After you select the time zone, you should see something like this:

Current default timezone: ‘America/Los_Angeles’
Local time is now: Thu Dec 8 09:39:56 PST 2011.
Universal Time is now: Thu Dec 8 17:39:56 UTC 2011.
