I really like the Gnome Classic's clock indicator. Is it possible to install/use it in Unity?

Example: enter image description here

Install screenlets , then open screenlets-manager.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:screenlets/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install screenlets

No, You can't use that indicator in Unity. Because that indicator is part of gnome2 (still used in gnome-classic) whereas Unity uses gnome3.

Even if I use it on Gnome Classic, Gnome 3? Maybe the unity panel just doesn't support applets? – user93289 Oct 2 '12 at 20:41
