No setting options

Asked by zohar995 on 2016-05-04

My OS is Ubuntu 14.04 My hard disk seems to be nearly full so I tried to uninstall some programs I thought I didn't use (in the Ubunto software centre, I just chose some that didn't look necessary). Now I need to change my user setting and I find that the system setting only have 4 options instead of the all that used to be there. I am afraid I made a mess of it.
Is there a way to recover what was lost? Or is it something else altogether that caused them to disappear?

I want to change the user setting: so that on start up the user will be the guest account and not mine (which is administrator). However, what I need to solve is the fact that the setting are no longer available for change. Not just this one, also the one that enables to change keyboard setting and many others.

You can set that in lightdm.conf

try reinstalling this one (and its dependencies).
