View Full Version : [SOLVED] Wall clock stops randomly in gnome-shell

December 5th, 2011, 02:44 PM

I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and Gnome 3 from PPA repositories. The clock in the panel randomly stops to update, just freezing the time. System time still goes on with no problem.

I can restart the clock by using the Tweak Tool and changing any of the clock settings (enabling and disabling seconds, for example). The last occurrence was at Dec 2, 23:59, but others freezes had happened at any time of the day. Edit: It seems that 23:59 is a real problem!

I've searched the forums and Google, but I couldn't find anyone reporting a similar problem.

I also couldn't find a way to reproduce the error. It happens usually once a week, but not regularly.

I realize it's no emergency issue, but it is quite annoying. I started checking only my wrist watch for not trusting the time on the screen.

Any hints?

After some updates, no more problems...
