So i recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 desktop on my home server and loving it so far. The only problem is that when I try to connect remotely to the desktop (be it vnc, nx or rdp), nothing would show up except for the background. If I had a window open, it would show up but that's it. So no icons on the side or menu bar (I'm not familiar with the ubuntu terms yet, unity maybe?)
I managed to get the sidebar going by creating an .xsession file with the following content:
But that just makes the sidebar appear, the top menu bar is still gone.
Currently I'm using RDP to connect to the server (i'm connecting locally through LAN) with xRDP installed.
So if anyone could help me out of this pickle.. i would really appreciate it!
BTW, I did try searching on google, but I have no idea what those bars are called so I ended up searchign with keywords such as "remote desktop ubuntu menu bar not working" but that obviously wouldn't give me any luck
