*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 23963 ***
The requested files have been attached. I would appreciate some sort of
response, but even more I would appreciate this bug *not* being marked
as a duplicate of #23963. It *can't* be a duplicate if the exact fix of
#23963 hasn't helped.
** Description changed:
- This seems to be a duplicate of an older bug (#23963, Oct 15th 2005)
- that seemed to resolve itself after the user re-installed his OS.

I have the exact same problem (which you can track in this discussion:
I was using Kubuntu Dapper when I first noticed that, no matter what I
did, my system was stuck on UTC (even though I could make the taskbar
clock display EST, where I live). I then upgraded to Kubuntu Dapper
64-bit and had the same issue - tried the same solutions and no luck.
I've since switched to Kubuntu Edgy (x386) since October and have the
exact same problem. In other words, re-installing has not succeeded in
One thing that's fair to mention (in case it helps) is that I keep /home
on a separate partition which I have not formatted throughout these re-
installations of Kubuntu. I don't see how this can be an issue -
particularly when many of the fixes I've attempted are as root - but I'm
putting this out there.
I'm reporting this because if/when I install Feisty and find the same
problem, it will be the last day I use this or any Ubuntu derivative.
Having all of my business emails forward-dated by 5 hours is a pain in
the rear and I want to do everything I can to help solve this. What's
ironic is that even my Launchpad profile lists my timecode as UTC (!).
[steps I have taken:
- BIOS (check)
- tzselect (check)
- localtime symlink (check)
- rcS edit (check)]
