How to Setup Time Syncronization with Lubuntu

First, you’ll want to check to see if you are running NTPd [Network Time Protocol Daemon]

timedatectl status

Check the following lines:
Time zone: America/Los_Angeles (PDT, -0700)
Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
RTC in local TZ: yes

If you don’t have such setup, you should run the following command:

sudo apt install ntp

Configuration

Edit /etc/ntp.conf to add/remove server lines. By default these servers are configured:

# Use servers from the NTP Pool Project. Approved by Ubuntu Technical Board
# on 2011-02-08 (LP: #104525). See http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html for
# more information.

server 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 1.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 2.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 3.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

After changing the config file you have to reload the ntpd:

sudo systemctl reload ntp.service

Then re-run the first command in this post and you should be now setup.
