I have my WiFi connections and VPN working without any problem. But I can't open "Wi-Fi Settings" or "VPN Settings" from the drop-down menu in the right corner of the panel.

That's where I'm clicking.

Whenever I click the menu option nothing happens.

My Ubuntu is 18.04.1 LTS.

I searched this problem here and Google but I couldn't find anything due to the large amount of "Wi-Fi is not working" posts.

Also I wasn't been able to reach the same app through the command line or the Activities however I'm not sure if I get the name right (I searched Network, Wi-Fi, Settings among other phrases).

Thank you

  • Do you mean network and wifi settings are missing from settings? What do you get if you run gnome-control-center wifi? Have you tried reinstalling gnome-control-center using sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-control-center? – Kulfy Feb 3 '19 at 16:50
  • I reinstalled gnome-control-center and worked. Thank you very much. I didn't know the name of the app. – Albo Feb 4 '19 at 10:51

I reinstalled the control center with

sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-control-center

As suggested in comments by @Kulfy. This fixed the problem.

  • @MrShunz In this case, there was no answer written to be accepted - the OP has written what worked as suggested in comments, and attributed the positive result to kulfy. Perhaps it could have been worded better... – Charles Green Feb 4 '19 at 16:10
