    prob logging in..

    Whenever I try to login to my user, all I get is the background pic and nothing else - no desktop/unity. I can bring up a virtual terminal (ctrl + alt + F1), and when I press on the PC power button I get the option of suspend/restart/cancel/shutdown.

    If I log into my wife's account, everything works OK (I'm writing this from there now).

    Any help to sort this without a re-install would be much appreciated!

    Cheers.
    Windows free since '09 - never looked back!

    Try Ctrl alt f1 then log in to terminal session using the account that doesn't work via the GUI. Then try

    Code:
    unity --reset
    Log Gui out of wifes account then back in as the account that was broken. May or may not help.
