I removed "System Settings" app from elementary, and I tried to reinstall with the appcenter but it didn't download :( Please help me.

  • No problem, I resolved it. Commented May 6, 2020 at 21:29
  • You can try to recompile all the app with VALA and ninja: Commented May 6, 2020 at 21:29

  • Compiling and installing it this way means that you won't receive updates for these components in the future. You can install switchboard from the terminal with sudo apt install switchboard and then the plugs are called things like switchboard-plug-sound etc... Commented Oct 8, 2020 at 14:15

You can try to recompile the app, it doesn't call "System Setting", the app name is Switchboard, so just go to the Elementary OS github and check the repo of this app (https://github.com/elementary/switchboard ), 1) Download the repo 2) Install all the libraries and dependencies 3) Compile the project with vala and ninja 4) DONE ! :D
