If you're not scared of the command-line, you can open up a terminal
and, depending on which version of Ubuntu you're running, you can try
one of the following:

Pre-Gutsy (<7.10)
user at host~:$ sudo tzconfig

Then follow the prompts.

Gutsy (7.10)
user at host~:$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

It's the replacement for tzconfig.  It's ncurses-based so you have a
little bit of a "graphical" interface for it.  Just follow the prompts
to pick your timezone and you should be good-to-go.

Also, if you want to sync your hardware clock to your system clock, you
can run the following:

user at host~:$ sudo hwclock --systohc
