I am using ubuntu 10.04 and since a few days ago, I do not have the time on my panel any more. As I already found among answers to similar issues, it must be related to "indicator-datetime" but it seems that this application is obsolete. Does anyone know what I should exactly do get the time back?

Thanks in advance for your help

you can add a new panel and delete the previous one.. adding the time applet to the panel may also help u ! – Z9iT Dec 16 '12 at 10:12
Do you still have the other indicators like messaging, session, etc? – Alistair Buxton Dec 16 '12 at 15:16

try sudo apt-get install --reinstall indicator-datetime

or sudo apt-get install indicator-datetime

logout and log in
