Re: Settings Date & Time Missing NTP Configuration Button

No, I am not saying the UI is broken. For one, I don't use Gnome, so I don't have the option to get to the date/time configuration application through an icon on my desktop panel. It's possible that Gnome is using an application that you launch from your panel clock icon that I don't have/see.

Is the date/time configuration application the same when launched from panel icon and from cli "# system-config-date", or two different apps?

You can access the date/time configuration application from the main applications menu, no need to launch it via the command line. One should be prompted for root privileges in that case. I launch system-config-date from cli as root since I am not prompted to enter roots password when launched from the menu and thus it won't run.

I will also point out, that in the system-config-date application, there are two tabs. The Timezone tab, where you select timezone and whether to use local or UTC time, and the Date and Time tab, where you either select your NTP client settings if you are syncing your time via the internet, or, set the date/time manfully if you are not using network time syncing.

Re: Settings Date & Time Missing NTP Configuration Button

If Gnome is providing you with a date/time application launched from the desktop panel that is not "system-config-date", and you are not being prompted for roots password prior to it launching, then maybe your "missing" configuration button is missing because you are not root. Normally, regular users cannot change date/time settings.

Re: Settings Date & Time Missing NTP Configuration Button

OK, I've figured it out. I'm not surprised at all that PabloTwo is correct.

Where I was getting stuck was anaconda during install displays something that looks exactly like the Date and Time Settings in Gnome but they aren't the same. In other words it is "from the installation guide" which is exactly what PabloTwo said.

I hope I wasn't too much of a pain and am sorry if I was.

PabloTwo, thank you for your patience and working with me on this.
