Ubuntu – Time missing from panel


How to get the time back in the systray? I had it in the middle of the toolbar at the top of classic 11.04 but upgraded to ubuntu 11.10 and it is gone. I have set whitelist to "all" already.

If you're running Unity, not Gnome Shell, my guess is that indicator-datetime isn't running. Try running /usr/lib/indicator-datetime/indicator-datetime-service from a terminal window. Hopefully that'll fix things. If not, please edit your question to include the exact error message(s) you received.

To launch a terminal, hit Ctrl+Alt+T. You can also type this command to get a list of indicators that are currently running:

ps -ef | grep [i]ndicator
