    Question unity-reset does not work

    It previously worked when I upgraded to 12.04 after running DISPLAY=:0 unity --reset and installing the proprietary AMD driver. Since then, I've kept my packages up to date, and it has not worked for about a week. I'm currently using unity2d to post this.

    Here's what I'm seeing:

    Upon login, only the background wallpaper and cursor is displayed.

    If I press the power button, the shutdown prompt appears, but is missing the usual decorators.

    From a virtual terminal (ctrl+alt+F1) DISPLAY=:0 unity --reset prints some normal output, and ends with a WARN for unity-glib.gobject about a NULL pointer and exits saying Trace/Breakpoint trap core dumped.

    Is there something else I should be running besides unity --reset to try and get my system to a normal state so that unity loads properly?

    Re: unity-reset does not work

    What happens if you run unity --reset from within Unity2D? I know it shouldn't make any difference, but...

    I would have suggested adding the Unity testing PPA but 5.10 has just been pushed to the main repo so there's no point adding that PPA now.

    I did another update today, and have v5.10 now... I get some different console output, but still the same behaviour, hmm...
