    "Appearance" lost/removed

    Hey guys, I made a trivial/stupid error and I can't solve it, even google didn't help.

    Accidentally, while playing with themes, windows etc. I removed the "Appearance" menu somehow. How to put it back/reinstall it? I can't find which app this was...
    Now I can't even change my background settings

    Unity on Ubuntu 12.10 x64.

    Thanks

    what if you just reinstall the control center?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-control-center

    Try system settings or the context menu found by right clicking the desktop. For additional settings install the Gnome Tweak Tool.

    The package that includes the defalt appearance setting is the gnome-control-center

    Nope, it didn't help.

    Clicking "change desktop background" does not help either, cause it leads me to "system settings" menu... with "appearance" menu missing

    Try installing or reinstalling gnome-control-center-unity:

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

    or

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

    It worked! Thanks!

    I had it removed, so installing it with proper app name helped

    Sorry, I have no such package on my 12.10 installation.

    gnome-control-center-unity is not listed in synaptic
