    Re: No Desktop

    I have reinstalled and everything appeared to be ok apart from the problems mentioned in my last reply.
    I then updated and ended up back to square one with no desktop bars or icons. Unfortunately I did not observe which updates were applied, update just said there were 135 to install. I presume at least one of them was graphics related and I presume there is a log somewhere of what was updated.
    When I was able to access the additional drivers there was a beta driver from nvidia which I tried activating but nothing useful happened.
    Is there any further information I could provide which would assist anyone in finding a workeable solution to this problem.
    It is very frustrating because all previous incarnations of ubuntu have worked 'straight out of the box' as it were but 12.04 seems to be a whole different ball game.

    Re: No Desktop

    Does the desktop work if you log in as guest (or create another user and login as that)? This would help understand whether it is a basic graphics config problem, or just something in the session of your current user.

    If it's only a problem with the current user account, then resetting unity may help :-
