I have messed up with my notification bar such that its not showing time and battery status.

How can i get them back? I am using gnome-classic for now. Here is the screenshot.enter image description here


Reinstall indicator-datetimejust in case you have removed it unknowingly, it is best to run the install command again.

sudo apt-get install indicator-datetime

Next, we are going to reconfigure the date time:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata

For battery indicator

 sudo apt-get install indicator-power


gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power active true

This command will restart unity panel and re-showing up the lost indicators

sudo killall unity-panel-service

If the command above has no effect reboot and check
