Information[edit]

Quote Whonix ™ Post Install Advice:

To protect against time zone leaks, the system clock inside Whonix ™ is set to UTC. This means it may be a few hours before or ahead of your host system clock. Do not change this setting!

Change System Timezone[edit]

Whonix ™ specific part: To prevent package anon-apps-config [archive] from changing the timezone to UTC during upgrades, create either file /etc/noutc or /usr/local/etc/noutc. [1]

sudo touch /etc/noutc

[2]

Whonix ™ unspecific part: Time zone can be adjusted as per Free Support Principle.

Note: system timezone as configured /etc/timezone / /etc/localtime is a "system setting". What (Xfce) graphical user interface clock widget is showing and its setting might be independent from the "system setting" since that is a "user setting".

Timezone vs sdwdate[edit]

sdwdate is mostly unrelated. It can operate independently of system timezone setting. It is a time synchronization daemon. It does not alter the system timezone.
