I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 17.04 on a Razer Blade (2016). After installation I installed
ubuntu-gnome-desktop. This is otherwise a pristine install.
My touchpad doesn't work, but otherwise the system runs fine. However, I have two "settings" apps, one that corresponds to
ubuntu-system-settings, and one that corresponds to
gnome-control-center settings app looks like the default ubuntu settings app, but its contents have changed somewhat.
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?
