KDE4 on 12.1. Right click on clock, select "Adjust Date and Time",
try to change time zone without root password.

Yes, that one requires password as that is attempt to change default
time zone for all computer users.

I can understand confusion as naming "Adjust Date and Time" does not
suggest any specific time setting; system wide (all users), single
user, specific type of clock (digital, analog, binary), or just that
clock. Fixing this is another topic for project mail list as it affects
all desktops, their coexistence in the system and user experience.

There are settings for particular clock:
- Right click Digital Clock Settings (or Analog Clock Settings).
- In window that opens click on Time Zones.
- Select time zones of your liking.
- Select from "Clock defaults to:" one that you want to see on that clock.
- Click OK.

Clock will show new time.
No need for root password.

Add as many clocks as you want and set to different defaults.

If you want to have one time zone selection for all clocks on
your desktop, you have to use same type of clock, either analog or
digital. They don't share time zone list.
