I'm running Ubuntu 16.10 on amd64. I'm using
xsession ("User Defined Session") as my desktop, so that everything is started from my
~/.xsession script. This script starts the
awesome window manager and various other programs, including
I would like to use the
unity-control-center ("System Settings") application to set various settings. Under 16.04 this worked fine. After upgrading to 16.10, most of the icons are missing from the control center.
It seems that this is due to the fact that the files in
/usr/share/applications/unity-*-panel.desktop have the line
OnlyShowIn=Unity;. If I comment out this line from, say,
/usr/share/applications/unity-datetime-panel.desktop, then the "Date and Time" icon appears when I run
unity-control-center. But this is not a very good solution since, as far as I can tell, it will be reverted whenever the
unity-control-center package is upgraded.
Is there a better way to be able to use all the control center panels in my setup?
