I recently installed GNOME 3 on my Mint installation. I finally cracked under pressure from my friends to upgrade back to GNOME 3 (I actually went Unity > GNOME 3 > Mint)

I've customized it to my liking, but there's still one thing bugging me.

Whenever I click "System Settings" from my menu, nothing happens. Then, when I try to load "gnome-control-center" from terminal, I get the System Settings window, but with no capplets. I get no errors from the terminal either.

Any pointers (No C jokes please) on this?

Check your ~/.xsession-errors, maybe it helps you with this (like, why didn't anything happen? Maybe some $PATH issue, if you installed the GNOME 3 stuff in a custom directory.)

I get the System Settings window, but with no capplets.

Sorry, no idea about this issue. Depending on whether you used your distributions packages, you could scrabble about bugs.gnome.org or Linux Mints bugtracker (maybe peeking into #gnome could help, too).
