No way to change Timezone from GUI

Bug Description

You do get to set up the correct timezone during install of Ubuntu Mate 14.10b1.

But to change the timezone later (eg when moving/travelling) I have to resort to:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Would expect to be able to change via Date & Time Calender panel applet, or from System > Administration > Date & Time, or from Control Center > Date & Time, or ...

You need to install gnome-system-tools.

Thanks for the info. Although I note that it is dropped by Debian Mate team in 1.10 not 1.8.

But if mate-system-tools is dropped, shouldn't gnome-system-tools be part of the Ubuntu Mate 14.10 release? (It was part of the Ubuntu 10.10 experience after all.)

If you dist-upgrade you'll find that gnome-system-tools are now part of ubuntu-mate-desktop.
