    wilp9: launcher, menu bar, home button not showing after upgrade to 3.5.0.18

    Hi, My Wild Dog Performance (wilp9) came with 12.10 and 3.5.0.17 kernel. Everything was 100% OK until I upgraded to 3.5.0.18. Since then I have to boot from 3.5.0.17, as launcher, menu bar, home button have disappeared from desktop.
    Any suggestion?

    Go ahead press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window, then run these commands:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-current-updates
    sudo reboot
    Your system should now reboot. Once it's finished, you should be all set. Let me know if you have any otehr problems.

    It worked!

    Thanks a lot!

    P.S.: I had to change the last command. It should be:
    sudo reboot

    ::facepalm:: I can't believe I typed that. I guess once you get "apt-get" programmed into your fingertips, you just can't shake it.

    Hello,

    I have a quick question:

    When I get my wilp9 should I run the system updates and then run the commands above, or vice versa? Haven't been on Linux in quite a bit, and last thing I need to do is break my first Ubuntu computer.

    Thanks,

    -Luis

    You would only need to run this one:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    That said, we're working on a new System76 Driver which will do this for you.
