Please try to (re-)install the package 'gnome-control-center'. If that seems allright, please open a terminal and type 'gnome-appearance-properties' + Return. Please report any error messages here.

-- Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type or copy and paste:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get --reinstall --purge install gnome-control-center capplets-data

-- give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter

Can you help with this problem?
