Note: If choosing General as Time Zone Area you have to set your GMT time zone (Location) following the POSIX standard (as usual in Linux) - which means you have to invert the offset of your common UTC time zone! (See tool tip for Location as well.) Therefore it is preferable to set the system's time zone by choosing the corresponding area and location instead of defining the GMT offset.Example for America/New York: In POSIX standard GMT+5 is the time zone 5 hours west of Greenwich and corresponds to UTC-5.
