Description of problem:
system time cannot be configured from gnome-panel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. right click on clock/time shown on the gnome panel
2. go to preferences
3. click on time settings
4. select configure system time
nothing happens, go back to the old window
window to configure system time should appear
I'm slightly confused by step 4. Can you provide screenshots of the problem?
The way it's supposed to work is
1. right click on clock applet on panel
2) go to the "Preferences" menu
3) click on "Time Settings" button
4) Input the new time in the spin buttons
5) Hit "Set System Time"
6) Depending on policykit policy ask for a root password, user password, or neither
7) Time is updated
It works this way for me. There's no "Configure System Time" button or anything that I know of.
On a second thought, it is more of a mismatched expectation. I was expecting an option to choose ntp (I remember doing it previously from the panel). Ideally it should launch/link to system-config-date which has this option. I had discussed it with aalam and he also thought it was a bug.
And even with System-> Administration -> Date & Time the time is not set correctly with ntp.
This is a Dell Precision T3500 system.
ah i see. I don't think that's something we're going to get to by GA unfortunately.
