I just installed 17.04 server and then desktop but I have only those icons (this is not actually my setting, but it is broken the same way)

I tried these command in an attempt to solve it:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get remove unity-control-center
sudo apt-get install unity-control-center
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install unity-control-center
sudo apt-get install unity-control-center-signon gnome-control-center-unity
sudo apt-get update --fix-missing
sudo apt-get -f install

But I did not manage to solve it. Can you suggest any ways to solve my problem?

i reinstalled ubuntu desktop notihng changed sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 reinstalled, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I did this also

ht t ps: / /askubu ntu.co m /a/621874/694849

but it also added only one icon. online accounts.

They are lots of still missing icons like power.

When i write gnome-control -center, i t brings lots of icons but when i click for example display, console shows:

➜  ~ gnome-control-center

And this did nothing

sudo apt-get install unity-control-center-signon gnome-control-center-unity

Ok I think I have a solution for this. I have been experiencing the exact same thing since upgrading to Ubuntu 17.04 and none of the proposed solutions worked for me.

By looking at the .desktop file corresponding to the missing icons entries, I found this line:

OnlyShowIn=Unity7;

And a unity --version returned unity 7.5.0, so i thought maybe just putting

OnlyShowIn=Unity;

without specifying the version would work, and bingo, icons started to re-appear in the system settings menu.

Note that deleting the line also works. Hope this helps.

    You could also add GNOME; in front of Unity since I think as of 17.10 they will be moving back to Gnome as the default desktop and things will probably be broken if you have migrated from previous versions and the upgrade doesn't automatically replace those existing files. – dragon788 Oct 24 '17 at 18:40

There is a known bug in Linux 4.3/4.4 that causes text to corrupt or images to disappear sporadically. It may be worth it to test 4.2 and intermittently messed up text should work.
