Changing the Device Timezone#
Custom applications depend upon the system timezone, which is not managed by xochitl.
Temporarily Changing the Timezone#
You can temporarily change the timezone by setting the
$TZ environment variable. This will apply to any application you run with that environment variable set.
Permanently Changing the Timezone#
The timedatectl command line utility is used to change the current timezone of the device. You will need to replace
<zone/subzone> With the identifier for your timezone, for example:
timedatectl set-timezone <zone/subzone>
The device does not come with the full set of timezones that
timedatectl list-timezones lists. To see what timezones are available, you can inspect the
/usr/share/zoneinfo folder. Toltec contains the full set of timezones that can be installed with the following command:
opkg install zoneinfo-utils opkg install zoneinfo-all
After installing the full set of timezones, you can use
timedatectl list-timezones to inspect the available timezones to select.
