Last, but not least: My Pi came configured with UT (Universal Time). I prefer to see time based on my time zone, which is Mountain. Here is how to configure time on the Pi for any location. This is a one time configuration setting that will survive between reboots.

We can use raspi-config to easy set our timezone. Choose the following:

  • Localisation Options
  • Change Timezone
  • Continent / Country
  • Time zone

Run raspi-config

Download: file
$ sudo raspi-config
