I accidently removed the time from the system tray while playing with some settings. I want to add it back, however, it seems that there is no way to do so. How can I do this?

I have tried going to "configure system tray" and then Entries. However, there is no way to add a new entry, you can only configure the ones that are there. Time is not an entry.

I have tried creating a new system tray, but it also doesn't have the time.

Kubuntu 20.04

This is an old thread, but possibly it helps. .. in short:

  1. Cashew
  2. Add Widgets
  3. Select desired clock widget
  • Yep, that's it, thanks. The clock is actually a seperate widget and not part of the system tray. That was the mistake that I made. Thanks.
