[HOWTO] Bring back “Network”, “Services”, “Time and Date” and “Users and Groups” in Gnome Menu

If you have installed your system via netinstall or by selecting packages one by one, or if you somehow removed some gnome packages, you may be missing some menu items. I noticed that I did not have some entries in System>Administration menu, namely, “Network”, “Services”, “Time and Date” and “Users and Groups”. I tried to search for them in Synaptic and Apt-file but failed to locate the exact package. So, I did some hit and trial and found the package was “gnome-system-tools”. I just installed it via synaptic and the menu entries were back.
