In Gnome ( the default Ubuntu desktop), right click the clock top right
and select "Adjust Date & Time", then select "Configuration - Keep
synchronised with Internet servers."

You'll be prompted for your password.

Select maybe 3 Time Servers near you - don't go mad and select all the
servers in the list :) Having more than one is OK - if any of them go
offline, the system will use the others. There's an Ubuntu one at the
bottom of the list that you might want to include as one of your choices.

That's about it - just close the dialogue and you should get regular time
adjustments from now on...
