I installed synaptic, and it wiped out the default system settings. I didn't like synaptic so I uninstalled it, but now, I don't have system settings anymore. How can I just install the system settings package in ubuntu 13.04.

What system settings are you referring to? – Mitch May 16 '13 at 6:05

If you mean System Configuration tools, I think there is a good chance if you will reinstall the ubuntu-desktop meta-package. In a terminal, type next command:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
