    Blank icons, white topbar

    Sorry if I get something wrong, very new to this. I turned on my machine and all my icons were blank, and the top bar was white, see screenshot. I'm running unity on 11.10. Made sure I'm using the right drivers, tried to change theme, did a unity --reset, nothing. Even switched to gnome, still the same problem

    Any suggestions would be very appreciated

    No-one else has experienced this?

    EDIT: Solved, added a delay before starting the gnome-settings-daemon. Thanks anyway

    Run the following in the terminal and see if there is a change .

    I'm curious, are you using GDM as the display manager? Because this kind of issue shouldn't occur anymore with LightDM, and this workaround shouldn't be necessary, neither would I expect it to work.

    Regards.

    I'm using LightDM, not GDM. Unity still doesn't work properly, but gnome seems to. Here's a log of what happens when I do a unity --reset:

    Re: Blank icons, white topbar

    i was browsing the net for a solution and i tried to edit it with no experience with how to edit anything with terminal (probably shouldn't have done that) but anyways i typed in:
    Code:
     sudo /usr/bin/gnome-settings-daemon
    and it actually worked!

    Then i rebooted the computer, and found that this is only a temporary workaround, and does not affect the blank icons. But, everything else including the top bar and terminal were fixed. Hope this helps!

    EDIT: To fix the blank icons, you have to reboot nautilus:
    Code:
    nautilus -q
    Then, you have to click on the home folder to start nautilus.
    Hope this helps!
