You can change the timezone with timedatectl

Syntax: sudo timedatectl set-timezone <TIMEZONE>

eg: sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Paris

Hope this helps Best Regards VK


You can change your timezone to Europe/Paris by running the following command:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris /etc/localtime

Once you’ve done that, run date to make sure that the system is now using the correct timezone.
