Time Logic - a bit off?
Deets: 11.5 Intel silicon
So I have my time zone set automatically based on location which is PST. (This has been toggled on/off/etc)
F.lux is correctly reporting Sunset for 5 hours from now, same goes for the "Wake: X hours ago". Though in order for that to happen, I have to set the "X:XX is when I wake up" for 7 hours later than I actually do. Which is not the worst thing in the world, as I've just manually set it as such. So while I have a work around and it might just work when I move time zones, I have a suspicion it won't. I only noticed this arvo because everything was SUPER "red" and when I popped in, it was like wake in 9 hours, which would be when I would be going to bed.
Can you check the timezone here?
Our "wake time" setting is entirely in local time - and I am not noticing any timezone offset on 11.5.2 here. Could you post a screenshot to show what you're seeing?
Apologies on the delayed response. I tried uploading the screenshots, but got a sharp error so imgur'd it.
Yes this really should not happen! It looks like part of the system is in UTC, but most of the system has a correct timezone.
Can you do these things from terminal?
"ls -l /etc/localtime"
then also "echo $TZ"?
All good - no worries. I've worked around it.
➜ polyfluxeus~ ls -l /etc/localtime lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 45 24 Aug 17:25 /etc/localtime -> /var/db/timezone/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles ➜ polyfluxeus~ echo $TZ ➜ polyfluxeus~
ONLY other thing I could think that might? cause some problems. My region/locale is set to NZ (and would prefer to keep it there.)
Hmm, looks like they are 5 hours behind (or really, 19 hours ahead). But you are right, the language settings should have no impact on local time. I will email for some more debugging.
