Ubuntu change timezone

Let me show you how to change timezone for Ubuntu.
I installed an Ubuntu server 18.04. And then I discovered that the time displayed was not correct. Hey, I was pretty sure that during the GUI installation process I had selected the time zone. Or had I not? Anyway, the time was one hour behind. This sort of a careless error can happen to anyone. So for those of you who might sometime be in the same boat as me: don’t worry! Here’s how to fix the issue and it’s really easy!

You’ll need to be logged in as a user with sudo privileges in order to change the system’s timezone

First list all available timezone or use this list.

  • List-timezone
timedatectl list-timezones
  • Set-timezone
sudo timedatectl set-timezone <timeszone>

Example sudo timdatectl set-timezone Europe/Zurich
