[HOW TO] Settings won't open

Greetings my fellow humans, so I've been struck by problem which i don't know how it happens. The settings won't open no matter which settings it was. The 'settings' problem even bother with almost everything related to or included in the settings, like i can't turn on/off bluetooth and switching into TV or projector. I use Zorin 15

Here's the solutions i found:

  1. sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y (let it run) and sudo apt autoremove

  2. sudo apt-get remove unity-control-center
    sudo apt autoremove
    sudo apt-get install unity-control-center

  3. dconf reset -f /org/gnome/control-center/

My problem was solved using the last solution, i hope this may help.

As i don't know how to edit the first post i'll just put it here. My problem crop up after i select or click the "Details" on settings like the pic above. After that, setting won't open anymore and all perks that came with it. The problem (mine) is solve using the third method.

First of all idk how and why it happens but i think someone who understand this better could give a better explainations or theory.

It's gnome!? They have been removing functionality and the ability to use extensions (which is completely gone, as it has been explained to me, in the latest version of gnome). You could always try other desktop environments.
