A script to manage system time (+GUI available by Frodouser-senior)

Hi!

I have created a very simple script in bash in order to manage the time(system time and date).

Its called timeset.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Its in the AUR now.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/timeset/
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
GUI available.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/timeset-gui/
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

it can be downloaded from here https://www.dropbox.com/s/daz26fiil0134gw/timeset
After downloading you will need to make it executable.

sudo chmod +x ~/timeset

After then copy it to the /usr/bin directory for easy access

sudo cp ~/timeset /usr/bin

(Assuming that it has been downloaded to the home folder.)
Otherwise it should be sudo chmod +x <path-to-timeset> and sudo cp <path-to-timeset> /usr/bin.

To run it

sudo timeset

To run the GUI

gksudo timeset-gui
