Hm, the time is not wrong, it is the UTC time, not the local time which of course is not what a user usually wants on inserting current date/time.
UltraEdit for Windows has in menu Advanced
the menu item DOS command
to run from within UltraEdit Windows command processor cmd.exe
with the specified command (line) and capture the output into a new file. In other words on Windows the user can click on Advanced - DOS command
, enter command set
, click on button OK
and get displayed in a new edit window all environment variables set for UltraEdit process. I suppose there is something similar in UEX to execute a shell command from within UEX. Otherwise configure quickly a user tool which executes printenv
with capturing output to a new file.
There is Ubuntu Environment Variables
listing the predefined environment variables on Ubuntu like LC_TIME
. I found also this page Time Zones: TZ vs tzselect vs timedatectl
on which the questioner did not get any answer unfortunately. More helpful could be the page: How to set or change timezone on Ubuntu 18.04?
I have just read on UltraEdit for Windows help page Settings:File handling:Encoding
that the configured locale determines also date/time format on using command Date/time
. But this is not
true on Windows 7 with currently latest UltraEdit for Windows according to my tests. I get the date and time inserted always in format as defined in Windows 7 date/time format settings independent on which locale is configured in settings of UltraEdit. I don't know if UEX has a locale setting in Preferences
Please note that this is a user-to-user forum and I am a user without Ubuntu nor any other Linux. There are not many UEX users visiting frequently the forums which is the reason why I replied at all although not using Ubuntu 18.04 and UEX. You may ask IDM support by email for help on this issue. See technical support page
which could be more promising on this issue.
