Time in other location- in Ubuntu 1504

I have observed that since 14.04 sometimes time in other locations does not work the way it should work. It does not let you add any other location in the clock section thereby impacting your ability to quickly know the times and timezone of your friends  and family. Below is a quick and dirty way of getting that functionality back.

You need two files to download and install depending on your architecture (32 bit or 64 bit)

File # 1 – Mandatory file (irrespective of you architecture) – https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libtimezonemap-data_0.4.4_all.deb

File # 2

  1. For 32 bit architecture – https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libtimezonemap1_0.4.4_i386.deb
  2. For 64 bit architecture – https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libtimezonemap1_0.4.4_amd64.deb

Installing the downloaded files using:

  1. For 32 bit : sudo dpkg -i “libtimezonemap1_0.4.4_i386.deb” “libtimezonemap-data_0.4.4_all.deb”
  2. For 64 bit : sudo dpkg -i “libtimezonemap1_0.4.4_amd64.deb” “libtimezonemap-data_0.4.4_all.deb”

Now you can add additional locations to show the times in other cities. A quick show of my clock 🙂

Cheers. Click on like if you followed this up. ThanksIMG_20150709_111700
