    Exclamation 11.04 Missing Maximize/Minimize/Close icons, invisible cursor

    I am new. I have installed recently a bunch of distros and settled with xubuntu 11.04 for my old laptop. Everything worked fine out of the box except some times wireless stopped working and the pc needed a restart. One of those times i restarted and because restart seemed unresponsive I clicked again but a problem tab poped up. Every time that i clicked restart, the pop up appeard I was forced to force shutdown.

    Now...
    1. Maximize/Minimize/Close buttons are completly missing. Even windows settings (where you can unjust those buttons) does not work. It is blank.

    2. Cursor is invisible but when i click something appears , stays visible but the cursor is a different icon than before.

    3. other problems as well. I cannot move terminal etc...

    Looks like the window manager isn't working. Press Alt+F2 and type in:
    Code:
    xfwm4 --replace
    Does everything improve? If so, and if you lose everything again the next time you login, you will need to add that command to your autostart.

    Thanks, you just saved me from having to turn in my Comp. Sci. homework. The teacher overlooks my apathy if I fix his computer.

    Thank you very much, very helpful. I had the same problem after installing KDE KMahjongg on my Acer Aspire One notebook, running with XUbuntu 12.10 with Xfce4.10 Environment and your little trick solved it miraculously
