    Default Switching between Linux and Windows changes my system clock

    Hey guys,

    I've had this problem on all my PC's but just ignored it really, but I'd like to figure out what the issue is. On all three of my Gentoo machines, whenever I switch from Linux back to Windows, the system clock will always be different. Actually, on my laptop I don't have Windows, but the clock seems to be different on each boot.

    I am just wondering if this is a KDE issue or something, or if there is something I can do to fix it? Since it's happening on all three PC's, I am sure the problem is with me.

    Thanks!

    Lightbulb I had the same problem

    It turned out to be that my system clock (in GNU/Linux) was set to UTC instead of my local time-zone, which is -4 hours GMT. All I had to do was set UTC to false. You might have to do the same with yours. Consult your distro's specific steps or follow the one below:

    Ok great, I am sure that's it. I will look into it.

    I am also -4 GMT
