    How to reinstall unity after I've broken it

    Hello

    I was messing with nvidia optimus things, and I decided to remove nvidia driver using "remove -purge nvidia*" and somehow ubuntu-desktop and maybe few others important packages were removed. Now when I log in in Unity I only see window menu at top and no launcher or indicators.
    How can I reinstall Unity?

    P.S. writing this using GNOME3
    P.P.S. ubuntu 11.10

    First I would recommend reinstalling any nVidia drivers using the proprietary drivers in the system settings, then open a terminal and type (when logged into a unity session)
    unity --reset
    Where are my eyes? ... Oh there they are.

    Thank you, it helped!
    I've reinstalled ubuntu-desktop and then used "unity --reset". I didn't know about it before and tried to use "unity --replace".

    P.S. I don't need nvidia drivers because I also have built-in intel graphics.
