Public bug reported:
I just moved and I wanted to update the current time displayed in the
system. I thus typed “time-admin”. A window opens, but most of its
buttons are locked, except [Help], [Unlock], and [Close]. I thus clicked
on [Unlock], but nothing happens. I guess that a window asking for my
password was supposed to pop up.
As a consequence, I can’t change my system clock. This is frustrating,
as my system clock is 5 hour late and I need to adapt to my new time
Here is what I got from the terminal:
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
