    Ubuntu 12.04 Update Error

    I just updated and restarted Ubuntu 12.04. I got a black screen after the log in. After suspending by closing the lid, I get the a black desktop, not the usual, and my desktop icons, nothing else.
    Any help would be amazing.
    Thanks.

    What does logging into unity2d do?

    Okay, try:

    Code:
    unity --reset
    and can you post the output of:

    Code:
    /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    in case your graphics stopped working for some reason.

    I can open a terminal window using CTRL+Shift+T and can paste text, but I can't enter the command.

    Probably a problem with your Xorg config.
    (shouldn't this be in Ubuntu +1?)

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Update Error

    You should get a bunch of errors and warnings for the first command, it's an imperfect procedure which seems to work. Leave it to run for a bit, then try Unity again. Also, can you remember a few of the more important ones and paste them here?

    The second one needs to be run in an X session, so login to Unity2d and open a terminal. When you say 'can't enter' what do you mean?

    Sorry this is happening, 12.04 is still unstable software.
