Re: [opensuse-gnome] Timezone settings -- still not solved?

Thanks for the pointer...
Indeed, I see this was fixed on SLE12:
But this patch was never submitted to the openSUSE community and as a
result is not available in the openSUSE packages.
We'll probably have to find a 'smarter' way for things like that.

Ouch. That's not ideal. Agreed, there is potential for improvement.

I'll see if I can forward port that TZ patch into GNOME 3.14.

I just got the update via Factory, and it works like a charm. And
did not require a reboot or restart of GNOME, even.

Thank you very much, Dominique!

PS: I have my systems generally setup to do auto-timezone switching
(control-center/date&time) and have actually not had to change the TZ
manually for a while... even more comfort than 'just not requiring the
root password'

Yes, though I have had hotel networks where the automatic detection
did not work reliably. Probably because it was a larger hotel chain
and they were routing private IP addresses via some central locations
in a different timezone (think different timezones within the US).

Plus, when I board a plane I usually switch to the destination timezone.
Without being connected to the Internet. That one probably won't work
automatically before GNOME 4.14 when gnome-clock and gnome-itinary will
be coupled? ;-)


PS: Below my current "GNOME 3 on SUSE Papercuts" list; several issues
(incl. the two listed at the end) have been resolved already, and I feel
things definitely are moving in the right direction.
