Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

Bug #601974 discusses how to enable displaying the date and day in the datetime applet. While dconf-editor still has entries for /apps/indicators/datetime (show-date, show-day and show-seconds), and they are checked, they no longer work. I don't know the precise version that introduced the issue, but I believe it is the 0.1.92 series.

Yes, they moved as GNOME changed the naming policy for GSettings keys.
They're now /com/canonical/indicator/datetime instead
of /apps/indicators/datetime.

  status invalid

Changed in indicator-datetime (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Thanks. Should these perhaps be cleaned out somehow then?

Also, the descriptions for things under /com/canonical/indicator/datetime are quite messed up in dconf-editor. Looks like the newline character is wrong.

Not to mention, in addition to cleaning up, migrating the existing settings would be good.

Yeah, but since setting them was rather difficult to begin with we
haven't really prioritized migrating them. They were probably only set
by very advanced users :)
