setting-up system date, system time

Post#1 by user » 16 Oct 2019, 15:54

Hello I am a newbie
Is it possible setting-up the system date and the system time through the configuration file?

Porteus Kiosk version 4.8.0 x86-64
Configuration file in wwwroot on a remote machine reachable via remote desktop.

Thanks!

Hello user,

You can set system time zone:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#timezone

Date and time will be synced from the network over NTP protocol.

If internet access is not an option then you could also set the date/time using 'run_command=' parameter and 'date' utility:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#run_command

Google has many examples how to use the 'date' command in linux.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
