** (unity-control-center:3931): WARNING **: security-widget.vala:127: Failed to execute child process "gnome-control-center" (No such file or directory)

** (unity-control-center:3931): WARNING **: security-widget.vala:140: Failed to execute child process "gnome-control-center" (No such file or directory)

Ok, so the links work only when gnome-control-center is installed.

@Robert: This sounds like something for you. It's important enough to fix before final release, isn't it? (Seems like u-c-c is not the correct package, though.)
