So I noticed that Linux Mint listed the date and time in the lower right corner at the bottom of the screen in the 24-hour clock format. Following the link I tried setting the date format in the panel as follows: %A, %b %d. But now it doesn't show the time!

So what is the format to display the date and the time in 12 hour format?

Try this: %a %b %e, %I:%M %p the result should be the default configuration with the 12 hours clock format .
