Changing the time is easy, but then it is automatically synchronized with a time-server.

Before I had access to admin menus, but now I don't, when I click on the clock and try to change, i get an error. (I do have the root password)

Error is: "Failed to set System time", "not Authorized for Action" "org.gnome.clockapplet.mechanism.settime"
