Issues with Unity on 12.10
I took the time this past holidays to give a try at 12.10. I installed it in an available partition in a laptop. Everything went went fine the first couple of times I booted into it, but I'm now experiencing some odd behaviour.
First of all, the Launcher isn't shown after the login, I have the Dash and the super key menu, but not the pretty icon list on the left. On occasion it appears back again (not clear what triggers it) but most of the time it simply doesn't show up through out the session.
Another problem are the appearance settings. Every time I log in they seem to be automatically reset to the defaults; the wallpaper, for instance, has to be re-selected each time I log in.
Any hints on possible causes of these behaviours would be much appreciated.
