[Solved] No clock in gnome classic

Postby pooopies on Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:46 am

Hi guys, I'm running gnome (classic) on mint 14 with compiz. I have no clock at all in the top panel, or anywhere on the screen for that matter. I am not sure how to proceed to figure this out. I went to settings and tried to change random clock settings as well as looking through compiz for any possible configurations. I also went into gnome-tweak and changing settings there did not seem to help. Thank you for any advice and let me know about any other information you need.

Solution: <ctrl>+<super>+<right click> in the panel, then add clock

Cheers

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Wow, I didn't know that Compiz could be used with Gnome Classic :)
If you can't find your clock, maybe it's accidentally removed from the panel. You can hold the Alt key (or Ctrl?) and right-click the panel, choose Add to Panel, selec the Clock applet then choose Add :D

Thanks for the assistance abnvolk,

Yup, and after quite a bit of tweaking and fooling around with I finally have it how I like it, but this clock thing is bugging me.

I tried your suggestion with each button (and several other buttons and combinations), alas, no menu appears.

Perhaps it's Win+Alt+Rightclick :?

Yup! That was it, I'm quite surprised I didn't try that. Thanks very much,

Cheers
