Bug Description

None of the links inside the datetime indicator work. Press the clock or calendar app don't open, neither do the indicator settings.

ProblemType: Bug
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 13.10
Package: indicator-datetime 13.10.0+13.10.20130913-0ubuntu1
Uname: Linux 3.4.0-3-mako armv7l
ApportVersion: 2.12.1-0ubuntu4
Architecture: armhf
Date: Wed Sep 18 12:44:27 2013
InstallationDate: Installed on 2013-09-17 (0 days ago)
InstallationMedia: Ubuntu Saucy Salamander (development branch) - armhf (20130917.1)
MarkForUpload: True
 PATH=(custom, no user)
SourcePackage: indicator-datetime
UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install)

 * Not possible to open clock or calendar app from indicator, on phone that means those apps need to be browsed/searched to open which is definitely not the fastest way.

[Test Case]
 * Open the indicator and click/tab on the clock/calendar item.

[Regression Potential]
 * Launching the wrong app or specifying the wrong app url but that won't result in worse experience than current one.

[Other Info]
 * Those changes are only applying to Ubuntu touch.

indicator datetime is not supposed to do that, rather clicking its entries should take us to the clock app to be able to set time.

it is valid that none of it's options work, but as Omer said, the functionality to set date/time isn't correct.

The calendar issues are already being tracked in bug #121136, so I'm narrowing the focus of this ticket to the "Clock" menuitem, which is fixed by lp:~charlesk/indicator-datetime/lp-1227106 in 13.10.0+13.10.20131016-0ubuntu1
