The way I do it [from the terminal]:

List possible timezones

timedatectl list-timezones

Pick a timezone from the list

timedatectl set-timezone "[timezone]"
[replace timezone with the timezone you picked]

And finally, set the time

timedatectl set-time "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss"
y is each digit of the year
M is month
d is day
h is hours
m is minutes
s is seconds
Hope this helps :smile:
