I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 an my machine and since the last upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 the date&time is missing in the top panel of Unity. This machine was originally installed with Ubuntu 12.10. I upgraded it from 12.10→13.04, from 13.04→13.10 and last week from 13.10→14.04.
I tried every solution found in this question: Missing date & time from top panel of Unity Desktop. But nothing of all this works :-(
I tried the following things:
sudo apt-get remove --purge indicator-datetimeand install it again
sudo dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata
sudo killall unity-panel-service
and of course log out/log in again and so on...
Where can I find log files for the indicator or where could help me otherwise with this problem?
Trying to debug:
$ locate indicator-datetime-service /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/indicator-datetime/indicator-datetime-service $ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/indicator-datetime/indicator-datetime-service Indicator-Datetime-Message: indicator-datetime exiting; failed/lost bus ownership
locate indicator-datetime-serviceto find where it is installed then run it in terminal. Report if there any error message.
failed/lost bus ownershipmeans it was running already.
dconf reset -f /com/canonical/indicator/datetime/. didn't work try
pkill -f datetimethen
