Cannot adjust time as user, no printing either in KDE, arch 32 bit

Time:October 11

Hi,
         I installed ntp, and tried to adjust time as it is aways wrong.
Down South here in Oz it lookks liike we are in Canada or Europe!
It asks for root password to auto update it from a time server,
but says it is not system policy and then refuses to let one do so even once as root
It states there is something wrong with the dbus backend.
Perhaps a root login may be able to fix it but perhaps not too
There is no printing in kde, the config complains of orpan modules and old third pary modules lying around and blames the last upgrade.
Guess I 'll have to go to cups printing and hope cups is OK.
Guess these are bugs and a wonky kde control module and/or dbus and they may have been reported already,

Thanks for you interest Yurlungur,
                                                 Somehow I managed to fix ntp, it now updates with ntp and an ntp timeserver, so now I am going to try printing via cups printing on the web due to the bad state of the KDE control panel in Arch.
By the way before your post I upgraded dbus, but the control panel is the problem I am sure, as this did not help.
May I ask what desktop you use

Hi El Zorro,
I don't use KDE so I can't help you there, but I can try and help with ntp. This is sort of an obvious question, and if you've already done this, please ignore me, but have you tried debugging dbus? Is it running properly (as far as I know, it's pretty plug-n-play, but maybe you need an update, or the daemon isn't running right)? KDE may have a front end for ntp, but there's no reason ntp shouldn't be completely controllable by the command line... and if it's not, there's probably a dependancy problem. Just for kicks, can you post the daemons line of /etc/rc.conf and the entire contents of /etc/ntp.conf?
