KStars Local Time Offset wrong. #24549
I have a GPS time source with a -4 Offset in EST timezone. Everything reports correctly in INDI drivers and system clock sync, But KStars is showing only -3 offset. This is when Time & Location Updates are set to GPS & Mount Updates KStars. If I choose KStars Updates All Devices, the offsets are correct.Edit: Not repeatable. What could be the cause of this?
There is no place to manually correct the offset that I can find while using GPS.

The system timezone on whatever the GPS device is connected to must be set correctly.

I didn't use any GPS devices, i simply sync the time from the Internet or use the date set command
Yet I still found the LT is 1 hr shifted from the system clock. See screen attached.
Am I missing anything?

Maybe a Daylight Savings setting anywhere that adds an hour to the time in KStars?

Check the geographic location settings, is DST correct? DST rule correct?

I've located where the problem is. If I select Hong Kong. China from the city list it appears KStar mistaken there's a daylight saving.
If I select Canton, China (which Canton is the province of Hong Kong) and the problem is gone. Then i've found in the DST rules which is incorrect:

#"HK": DST starts 2nd Sun in May, reverts 3rd Sun in Oct (3:30)
# (Hong Kong)

There's no daylight saving rules in Hong Kong. Can I change the DST rules file by myself? Thanks!
