    Sorry to ask a trivial question, but I can't find how to set the timezone. I've read about system preferences, but I can't fnd one that as timezone in it. Time doesn't. I used it to set the time via NTP, but it looks like the TZ is GMT.

    Thanks for your help,

    You need to enter system settings -> locale and set your country on the first page. On the sevond page there is the time zone setup.

    Both need to be correct to use SetClockNTP.

    Please note that DST is not available for all country, as some countries use a dice every year to settle the switch dates. SetClockNTP just uses fixed switch specifications like "last Sunday in October".

    Thanks, geit. I didn't see the second page under locale.
