Ubuntu change timezone

Let me show you how to change the timezone for Ubuntu.
I installed an Ubuntu server, 22.04. And then I discovered that the time displayed was not correct. Hey, I was pretty sure that I had selected the time zone during the GUI installation process. Or had I not? Anyway, the time was one hour behind.

This sort of careless error can happen to anyone. So for those of you who might sometimes be in the same boat as me: don’t worry! Here’s how to fix the issue, and it’s really easy!

You must be logged in as a user with sudo privileges to change the system’s timezone.

First, list all available time zones or use this list.

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

Example sudo timdatectl set-timezone Europe/Zurich
