I just installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 on my Asus N550JK and everything seems to be working fine, except for the system settings. When I try to open the system settings, only the settings icon appears in the toolbar, it hangs for a while and then disappears without any error message. The same things happens when I try to open a specific section of the settings (e.g. "sound") except for the section "printers".

In advance, thank you.

  • Execute unity-control-center from a terminal, and look for any errors. – Jos Aug 24 '16 at 14:34

    I just did it and I got the following error : "(unity-control-center:24476): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_strsplit: assertion 'string != NULL' failed Segmentation fault (core dumped)" therefore this relates to this issue : askubuntu.com/questions/786927/… – Scrashdown Aug 24 '16 at 14:55

I had the same problem which was solved just by installing "unity-control-center".

  • Already installed. apt-get install --reinstall didn't help either. :( – tsbertalan Nov 10 '16 at 1:20
