Upgraded to Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 (Gnome 3.8).

I was expecting to see Privacy and Search panel in System Settings. But they are missing.

How do I get these? Do I need to install any additional packages?

You must add ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 and ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging to get the privacy icons as stated in: Privacy settings icon not visible in gnome 3.8

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging

Then just upgrade your gnome.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hope that helps.
