Ubuntu: How to reinstall gnome classic clock in 16.04


I had a problem with my menu-bar clock and date after some wrong fiddling the clock disappeared. I couldn't figure out how to reinstall it. I did see receive some suggestions, but none of them worked and after I tried them it got worse: the menu-bar disappeared completely!

One of the suggestions is "You need to reset the per-user configuration of the notification area." by David Foerster. I would like to know how to do it. BTW, I am using Gnome Classic.


Check clock settings and make sure you mark up show a clock in the menu bar option.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-control-center  

then restart the task bar service by

sudo killall unity-panel-service
