Changing Local Time Zone on BBB running Debian 7 (Wheezy)

If you don't want to use UTC time then here are the steps to change it.
The changes should be instantaneous and don't require a reboot.

You may need to do this for all user accounts.

  1. dpkg-reconfigure tzdata (select your timezone)
  2. Edit /etc/adjtime and change the last line from UTC to LOCAL

  1. Sorry for my date.
    I use BBB,jessie. I want to change the timezone with Qt or c code, not command line. Do you know anything about this ? Thanks for answers.
