Ubuntu – System Settings icons missing in 14.04


I did a fresh install of trusty 14.04, but a lot of icons are missing.
I installed from DVD which was painfully slow and I hope to avoid repeating the process, especially since I started customizing stuff.

Here's my settings window:

System Settings

I've tried:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-control-center
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-settings-daemon-schemas

None of which changed anything.

Any idea? I wanna edit preferences and none of them are in System Settings, neither in Unity Dash.

I had exactly the same problem - same icons missing as well. I had stupidly uninstalled gnome-bluetooth, and nothing was fixing it. So I did what user282306 (r00t) suggested -

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

And I've got them all back again.

Kudos @user282306 (previously r00t) for the suggestion.
