    If you are using an ubuntu session (unity) then make sure this is installed
    gnome-control-center-unity

    if using a gnome session then you should note that in orig. post

    There is no command associated with that package

    If you create a new user & log in to that user does system settings look & contain what it should?
    (it's not that you're just missing some items, the whole look of it is also wrong

    Is ubuntu-desktop installed? (just a meta package
    If not then what, if anything, additional would installing it pull in

    Code:
    sudo apt-get -s install ubuntu desktop
    And just for info
    Code:
    apt-cache policy gnome-control-center

    Well you're using g-c-c from one of the gnome3 ppa's & clearly it's not working correctly, at least in an ubuntu session. (3.8.5-0ubuntu1~saucy1
    Why are you using that ppa?

    dont remember when and I why I added that, may be yppa changed some old ppa to this one

    so I will remove that ppa and reinstall gnome-control-center , see if it will be ok or not

    Reinstallation of gnome-control-center is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
