Re: remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)
Over the past while people had started to complain (among them myself) about the Natty version of Unity. The reason being: It would crash if I did 3 consecutive actions on my laptop, until I got rid of all of the custom settings. I really can't see how Oneiric can be any worse than that, especially since it's working fine for me in this release. Anyway,
Another thing to try (this works with a lot of things) is to purge all of the configuration files in your home directory pertaining to Unity. I had problems with nautilus in the last release, and that solved them all.
The files will be either loose in your home dir, (just hidden) or in ./.config. (also hidden)
This may or may not help for the user who comes across this page looking for answers to their own problem with just about anything, Unity, Nautilus, Evolution, Shotwell, Banshee, etc. Pretty much anything except Mozilla applications has this problem.
