  Clock does not update TZ based on location

Status in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  See attached screenshot of the configs.  Despite the fact that it is
  configured to update the time based on location, this simply does not
  work.  I always have to manually re-configure the system time to the
  correct current timezone.

  This is rather annoying.  Even Google Calendar, running inside a
  browser, properly detects location and offers to change TZ to match.
  But Ubuntu simply does not.

  This has been a problem for quite some time, please fix it.
