I have installed a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop system. I haven't configured anything yet. Thus, the very first action was to start the unity-control-center by clicking on the gears icon. Then, I clicked on the "all settings" button but it has no effect. Instead, I expected more settings options to appear.

When I start the program on the command line, it does not print any error messages.

  • The "All Settings" button is actually the link for unity-control-center, so you are actually on the "All Settings" menu. You should upload screenshoots to explain better. – Lucio May 30 '14 at 15:27

Now, if you click on the All Settings button, it will work going to the main menu.

  • Exactly, the last button is to show where are you in that moment, that is why it doesn't run any event. – Lucio May 31 '14 at 0:38
  • I might add why I was confused: I come from Lubuntu and miss some settings possibilities (which are somewhere else in Ubuntu probably). I expected "All settings" to be some sort of expert mode, revealing, well, all settings. – Torsten Bronger May 31 '14 at 8:05
