After installing Debian / Ubuntu on a BeagleBone the correct time zone needs to be set. This can be done easily with the command

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Maybe the appropriate package needs to be installed with

apt- get install tzdata

Now you can easily select the right time zone based on its location.

Select timezone with geographic area

Select Timezone with the right city

After the correct time zone is set, you can see something like the following output for control.

root@arm:~# dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Current default time zone: 'Europe/Berlin'
Local time is now:      Thu Mar 20 08:38:21 CET 2014.
Universal Time is now:  Thu Mar 20 07:38:21 UTC 2014.
