Bug Description

Whenever I open the Public directory I see a message in a blue background that reads "Sharing - May be shared over the network" with a 'Preferences' box on the right (see the attached picture). But nothing happens when the 'Preferences' button is clicked.

You need to install Gnome-control center. Clicking preference button should open unity-control-center. So its a bug.

Tim, could you have a look to that one, it seems an issue with the xenial update calling the wrong command? (we might also want to patch the code to GTK_MESSAGE_QUESTION -> GTK_MESSAGE_OTHER as we do in nautilus so the cluebar has the proper color)
