Is it normal to have such a reduced system settings menu in Ubuntu 14.04? No options for keyboard, sounds...

sudo: unity-control-center: command not found – Dumitru Cristian May 24 '14 at 14:48
Open a Terminal then run gksu unity-control-center. Is it a fresh install of 14.04 or a update from a over version? – TuKsn May 24 '14 at 16:52
It's an update from 13.10. The result of your sugestion is: (gksu:3186): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap", – Dumitru Cristian May 24 '14 at 18:02

I noticed in the comments TuKsn mentioned to use

gksu unity-control-center

You said this came up with an error. Instead, try the following:

sudo apt-get install unity-control-center

If you do not yet have it installed, it will ask if you wish to install it (y/n). If you do have it installed, which is likely, it will make sure you have the newest version. Some of the solutions found at Missing System Settings after removing some packages may also help.
