i'm trying to find out why my linux have this difference in times:

cmd1: date

out1: Sun 14 Jul 2019 12:45:59 AM CDT

cmd2: hwclock

out2: 2019-07-14 00:46:48.389904-04:00

cmd3: timedatectl


Local time: Sun 2019-07-14 01:47:17 -03 [correct time!]

Universal time: Sun 2019-07-14 04:47:17 UTC

RTC time: Sun 2019-07-14 04:47:17

Time zone: America/Montevideo (-03, -0300)

System clock synchronized: yes

NTP service: active

RTC in local TZ: no

I was used Debian Strech with Awesome WM with the same problem, now in Debian Buster with i3...same problem.

Help please!



Add the following to ~/.profile:

TZ='America/Montevideo'; export $TZ
