Locations in Ubuntu datetime indicator

Ubuntu datetime indicator is a right pain to add extra timezones to.
The Locations... seems to be very poor when you try to add a new location at determining locations' full entry.
As an alternative you can add them to the configuration directly.
  • First install dconf-editor.
  • Open dconf-editor.
  • Navigate to con/canonical/indicator/datetime and edit the locations item with the locations you want.
Valid locations:
  • America/Vancouver Vancouver
  • Australia/Sydney Sydney
  • Pacific/Auckland Auckland
  • Asia/Tokyo Tokyo
  • America/Toronto Ottawa
