I just installed Ubuntu 14.04, and when I try to add "Weekday" or "Date and month" to my clock, the entire clock disappears (though, oddly this does not happen when I add "Seconds"). I tried to uninstall and reinstall indicator.datetime, but no luck. Any tips?

  • Have you tried relogging after the change ? – MrVaykadji Sep 25 '14 at 20:08
  • I should have clarified, but yes, I have. – pianocargo Sep 25 '14 at 20:17
  • It might not be very helpful, but it works for me x) So it might be a random issue, or a conflict? Can't do much more for you, sorry. Other may! – MrVaykadji Sep 25 '14 at 21:13
  • There is another question with some answers that you might try: askubuntu.com/questions/458117/… – Martin Dirichs Sep 28 '14 at 16:00

Ok, install dconf:

sudo apt-get install dconf-editor

open dconf under com>canonical>indicator>datetime:

and uncheck and check " show-clock ".

logout and login.

I could solve this problem by

  1. deleting the /etc/locale.conf
  2. Going to Settings -> Language Support -> Regional Formats; choose a format; and 'Apply System-Wide'
  3. reboot

Background: The problem appeared when I changed my locale settings globally in /etc/locale.conf instead of locally in .bashrc. A post on Missing date & time from top panel of Unity Desktop - Ubuntu 14.04 pointed to 'Settings -> Language Support'. But only installing the missing regional formats was not enough.

In my case I need to comment out (remove) line export LC_ALL=C in /etc/environment.

  1. Logout
  2. Login
  3. Enable weekend/date in clock settings
