How to change time zone?
Can someone here explain how can I change the time zone, I live in Brazil and would like to put the correct time zone on my system. Thanks
In recalbox.conf : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/recalbox.conf-(EN)
# ------------ F - Language and keyboard ------------ # ## Set the language of the system (fr_FR,en_US,en_GB,de_DE,pt_BR,es_ES,it_IT,eu_ES,tr_TR,zh_CN) system.language=en_US ## set the keyboard layout (fr,en,de,us,es) ;system.kblayout=us ## Set you local time ## Select your timezone from : ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/ (string) system.timezone=Europe/Paris
@acris Got it, but what should I put in system.timezone=
One of this:
List of timezones : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones
timezone is not set in recalbox.conf. I found a way to set to Brazil.
1 - Remount your / filesystem to read-write
mount -o remount,rw /
2 - Unkink the /etc/localtime since it is set to Europe/Paris
3 - create new symbolic link to Brazil/Sao_Paulo
ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Sao_Paulo localtime
And finally type date to see your new timezone

Hope this helps.
Why didn't you just try
system.timezone=America/Sao_Pauloinstead of your trick ?
@subs I've tryed it, but did not work
What worked for me was changing it in kodi. It affected the rest of the system that way. Start up kodi, settings/appearance/international/timezone.
May work for you but best of luck~
@blackmagik you're right. kodi is the best way. my time zone isn't correct, put I think it's because of summer time. I'll try to solve this. Thanks.
