Best Answer

  • Not sure when this path changed, but as of Ubuntu 13.04 the seconds display can be set in the terminal with:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-seconds true
    

    To turn seconds display off:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-seconds false
    

    and checked with:

    gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-seconds
