What would that screencast be like? You set some wrong time then wait for hours and the clock won't be set to the correct time. Teej: you shouldn't run ntpdate manually but wait for Ubuntu to set the correct time.
However I just tried to run ntpdate: $ ntpdate 30 Jun 21:35:55 ntpdate: no servers can be used, exiting I do have 4-5 ntp servers ticked in the list in the time&date settings. -- Synchronizing with a time server does not work when time difference is greater than several hours https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/157215 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Desktop Bugs, which is subscribed to gnome-system-tools in ubuntu. -- desktop-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/desktop-bugs
