[KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

Hello!

Yesterday migrate to KDE4 Plasma 5, everything works fine the first day, but now I realize that the digital clock applet displays the time with an hour less, check with the command "date", "hwclock" KDE menu "Date and Time" and everyone agrees the same time, only the digital clock shows a different time, set the time zone applet successfully but the problem persists.

Thanks in advance

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

What is the output of `timedatectl`, run as root?

Everything seem configured right at the system level. You said that the clock displays 1 hour less, sounds to me like it isn't accounting for Daylight Savings Time.

I had the same problem.  I was able to fix it by adjusting the time in systemsettings5.  For some reason it was set on utc  instead of cet

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

I still have this problem. Strangely enough, it does work correctly if I try changing the symbolic link at "/etc/localtime" to other timezones. So it's either a bug in "/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Santiago", or this file has some special behaviour which bugs the KDE applet (since timedatectl shows the correct info).


EDIT: I also want to point out that the date is wrong in the thumbnail calendar appearing whenever I click on the applet. To be more precise, the time/date is 23 hours forward from the correct one. This also happens only after setting the chilean time zone.

Maybe it has something to do with the latest change in the chilean summer time dates?

I've the same problem, but I'm on Venezuela and there's no daylight save time. It shows one hour more and clock is well at system level.

I also thought this, but it's really weird as hwclock (and date) reports the correct time (11:12:23 PM CLST a few moments ago).


Anyways, as a temporary workarround I'm using UTC-2

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

I've realized that the problem is the digital clock widget. If I add the analog widget or the other one, it shows the correct time.

I got this fixed last week, but It may have  been the effect of the change of the DST here (I noticed after an upgrade and the time change, so I can't really tell).

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

The plasma widgets only started displaying the right time for America/Santiago on April 26th (the day DST was supposed to end before the time zone was modified) so it didn't get fixed because of an upgrade. You can still reproduce the problem by setting your clock back to April 25th or before. The clocks get all messed up: the fuzzy and analog clock are one hour ahead, the digital is one hour behind and the calendars are one day ahead. Except if you set your clock to April 25th. In that case no day is highlighted in the calendars. I guess there are some really weird calculations going on inside those widgets.

Ohh, that's too bad :c
Anyways, I can't understand why the widget is responsible for calculating the time since calling time (maybe with a different TZ set) gives you the time (correctly).

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

solution: you have to set your local time (Ortszeit) correctly

When you type timedatectl in terminal you see Local time and Universal Time. Sadly, KDE4 or newer shows you your local time as Universal Time which can be wrong. Just look for the country there under settings for digital clock and set it as standard.

Re: [KDE: Plasma 5] Digital Clock Applet display wrong time

Now it works for me, I think it was just because of the regular-last-minute change on the DST on Chile.

My clock shows 11:22, and it matches timedatectl and most importantly, the actual time.

timedatectl
      Local time: Wed 2015-10-28 11:22:44 CLT
  Universal time: Wed 2015-10-28 14:22:44 UTC
        RTC time: Wed 2015-10-28 14:22:44
       Time zone: America/Santiago (CLT, -0300)
 Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
 RTC in local TZ: no
