       localtime - Local timezone configuration file

       /etc/localtime -> ../usr/share/zoneinfo/...

       The /etc/localtime file configures the system-wide timezone of the
       local system that is used by applications for presentation to the user.
       It should be an absolute or relative symbolic link pointing to
       /usr/share/zoneinfo/, followed by a timezone identifier such as
       "Europe/Berlin" or "Etc/UTC". The resulting link should lead to the
       corresponding binary tzfile(5) timezone data for the configured

       Because the timezone identifier is extracted from the symlink target
       name of /etc/localtime, this file may not be a normal file or hardlink.

       The timezone may be overridden for individual programs by using the TZ
       environment variable. See environ(7).

       You may use timedatectl(1) to change the settings of this file from the
       command line.
