My settings app vanished

de flag

Like... the in-built app you use in Ubuntu to change system settings. It's... gone. What?

Normally it should show up in this menu at the top right of the screen. I also can't find it by searching for "settings" in the launcher. IIRC the app is called "gnome-settings", and running that in a terminal does nothing either.

A reboot has not fixed the issue.

Ubuntu 22.04.

The app is actually called gnome-control-center:

sudo apt install gnome-control-center

No idea how it got uninstalled. After installing it, you may find you need to restart the shell (Alt+F2, type "r" and hit enter). If this is inconvenient, you can just run gnome-control-center from a terminal.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
