I'm not sure why, but since an update a few days ago, the time and date settings won't open. I would try to trouble shoot this myself, but I don't know the command for opening those settings offhand.

What can I do?

The command is indicator-datetime-preferences. – elmicha Jun 16 '11 at 20:02

I fixed the problem thanks to @elmicha's comment. Turns out the application was running but not doing anything for some reason, so I ran killall -9 indicator-datetime-preferences and then indicator-datetime-preferences and it works :D!
