Edit - Solution for Linux Mint 18 / newer Ubuntu 15.10 and higher:
timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock
# Bonus: What doesn't work?
- DOESN'T WORK: Tell Windows to set the system clock to the UTC time. The registry setting is unreliable.
- DOESN'T WORK: Fake Linux by switching to the UTC timezone while setting your local time anyway. You will encounter various kind of errors (example:
The OCSP response is not yet valid (contains a date in the future). (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_future_response)when connecting to https websites with Firefox)
