tzupdate is a fully automated utility to set the system time using geolocation.
By default, tzupdate will geolocate you, get the timezone for that geolocation,
and then attempt to link that timezone to
/etc/localtime. You can pass
-p to print the detected timezone without linking. You can also pass
to pass an IP address to use, instead of geolocating you.
$ sudo tzupdate Detected timezone is Europe/Dublin. Linked /etc/localtime to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Dublin.
