I was having a problem with changing timezone...the clock would not show the correct time on xfce4 and running anything in wine threw up lots of TZ_INFO errors.

The cure was to revert to the TZ variable using UTC+n format rather than PUP+n.
Whilst changing this I ended up re-doing the timezone-set applet using Xdialog which to me gives a neater layout.

Here's my version If anyone wants to try.
Was written for 2.xx series puppies though may still be useful for later ones.

I tried it
had to do a complete reboot before it worked
but it did the job in Puppy Lassie which was showing the wrong time until I installed your program Smile

Yep needs total reboot to clear/set variables...rebooting X isn't enough.

I just got wine 0.9.56 working which doesn't seem to object to 'PUP' in the TZ file as it happens.

The wizard no longer needs gtkdialog(1) which is being phased out Smile

glad it was helpful
