This is just a minor annoyance, but I'd love to fix it.
I'm running Mint 17 with MATE 1.8.1. The clock applet on my panel knows my location, and displays the weather. Sometimes I like to look at other places where I've lived, and see how they're doing. If I change to a different city in the same timezone, all works fine. But it demands the superuser password if I want to change to a different timezone. (Which is long and annoying to type.)
Is there any way to set things up so that the clock applet is allowed to change the timezone, without screwing up my security settings too badly?
