I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 17.04 on a Razer Blade (2016). After installation I installed nvidia-375, nvidia-prime, gnome-shell, and ubuntu-gnome-desktop. This is otherwise a pristine install.

However, I have two "settings" apps, one that corresponds to ubuntu-system-settings, and one that corresponds to gnome-control-center. The gnome-control-center settings app looks like the default ubuntu settings app, but its contents have changed somewhat.

The ubuntu-system-settings app is the only one that contains options to modify the app launcher on the desktop. However, none of the changes I make to the settings in ubuntu-system-settings app every take effect.

What should I do to A) configure my system so that there is one settings panel (if that is the right thing to do), and more importantly B) grant myself the ability to modify settings for things like the app launcher?

  • modify the app launcher ... what modification are you talking about? Its position or something else? – Anwar May 18 '17 at 16:06
  • Is it what you're trying to do? askubuntu.com/questions/33605/can-i-move-the-unity-launcher – Anwar May 18 '17 at 16:07
  • In the image you can see options to "always show the launcher" and to adjust the size of its icons. I would like to do that. – vaer-k May 18 '17 at 16:48
  • So, it doesn't appear on Unity session or GNOME session. I'm assuming you've both sessions. – Anwar May 18 '17 at 17:07
  • Yes, I didn't delete unity, but I don't expect they are running simultaneously. – vaer-k May 18 '17 at 23:52
