Yes, I can. But, Under the clock tab, "Weekday" and "Date and month" have to be unchecked in order for it to show the clock again.

Same problem after upgrading to 12.10. Went to Language support got the message:
"Language support is not installed completely".
Clicked Install and the date and time now work.
Initial reaction to 12.10 compared to 12.04 regarding booting, opening programs, updates, etc...
"Sloooww..."
