Description philippe.roubach 2012-11-17 14:50:51 MSK
Description of problem:


open clock settings
then
check "automatical definition of the date and time
then
select the time serveur "europe.pool.ntp.org"
then
"apply"
then
you have an error message "unable to contact the local time serveur europe.pool.ntp.org"

and

compared to the previous drakclock we can't select accurate time serveur
as Europe|France fr.pool.ntp.org. this is the recommanded (by ntp organization)

i think you have "ntpd" running.
see output of:
$ pgrep ntpd
or better:
$ systemctl status ntpd.service

if so, the "ntpd" blocks execution of program "ntpdate", which "kde control center" uses.

not sure because if you choose pool.ntp.org there is no pb

right way to configure "ntpd" is via "drakclock".

program "systemsettings" aka "kde control center" aka "configure your desktop" does nothing with "ntpd" and persistent time synchronization.
it can run "ntpdate" and once-only synchronize system time.

therefore it is better to use the "drakclock".

where is drakclock ? (it's curious it is not in kde settings > system administration
Comment 5 Alexander Burmashev 2012-12-20 21:05:08 MSK
try alt-f2 drakclock :)
Comment 6 philippe.roubach 2012-12-20 21:59:56 MSK
why drakclock is not in kde settings as the other tools as drakrpm, drakfirewall, drakboot, harddrake ... ?
Comment 7 Aleksandr Kazantcev 2012-12-21 14:18:22 MSK
Really? All instruments on it... Only diskdrake and drakclock not been added...

i did not explain well.

"in kde settings as the other tools as drakrpm, drakfirewall, drakboot, harddrake ... ?" means these tools are in kde settings
Comment 9 Aleksandr Kazantcev 2012-12-21 14:30:40 MSK
Sorry... :) We add drakclock with update drakconf-kde4
Comment 10 Denis Silakov 2012-12-25 01:31:19 MSK
I've created kcm-drakclock (https://abf.rosalinux.ru/import/kcm-drakclock/build_lists), but I think we need opinion/help from UXteam here.

The thing is that if we add kcm-drakclock then we will get duplication - there will be two places inside KDE CC that can be used to configure date and time. I wonder is is easy to remove/hide native "Date & Time" settings? Or maybe someone can extend it to provide missing functionality?
Comment 11 Denis Silakov 2013-06-21 12:16:34 MSD
In Desktop Fresh R1, drakclock is integrated in KDE CC by default.
