This also affects Ubuntu Vivid-vervet amd64 as well. Same symptoms. To set time to internet automatically is shaded.

The bug is in unity-control-center, not indicator-datetime.

Switching to systemd from upstart fixed it for me.

unity-control-center gets a boolean value about whether system supports NTP from indicator-datetime, for Ubuntu installations with upstart, ntpd isn't installed (though there is ntpdate, default configuration doesn't make it work out-of-box) , switching to systemd makes me think of systemd-timesyncd.

Even installing ntpd manually does not allow you to select this option in the system setting panel. The item is still grayed out.

Problem vanished after switching to systemd, so that close the task for development release.
