What release of Ubuntu are you running? – Mitch Jul 8 '12 at 18:30
Also try sudo gnome-control-center – Mitch Jul 8 '12 at 18:44
worked but after restart . thanks – Vivek Goel Jul 8 '12 at 18:50
You should never have to run gnome-control-center as root. Thus - gksudo gnome-control-center is NOT an answer. You have other issues that need to be resolved. Try creating another user account. Do you have the same problem? – fossfreedom Jul 8 '12 at 19:47

I realize that this is an old issue, but given that I experienced the same problem, and that this question comes up high in Google, I figured I'd put a response in.

In Ubuntu 13.10, I had the same issue, and I solved it by entering the following command in the terminal:

killall unity-panel-service

This immediately reset the panel, and displayed the clock.

Obviously, I was running Unity when I experienced this issue.

I found this answer at Upgraded to 13.10 now clock settings are all disabled and clock does not display

I just had this exact problem, and this solution fixed it. I vote for removing the off-topic label, if possible. – Jack O'Connor Nov 10 '13 at 1:06
