I decided to drop Wubi because I had issues with fglrx which the Wubi installation might have exacerbated. So I initially installed Ubuntu 12.04 on one of my hard drives and then replaced Unity with Gnome Shell. After discovering that 12.04 uses Gnome 3.4 and not 3.6, I upgraded Ubuntu to 12.10 and install Gnome 3.6.
Now this morning when I woke up, it wouldn't boot properly. By pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 (or maybe just Alt-F2 was needed), I got a command prompt. I was able to start a graphical interface by usingThese are the things that I noticed:Code:startx
- There was no top bar or dash (I installed DockbarX), just the desktop icons
- I got a prompt that said the Gnome keyring was not unlocked and it asked for my password again
- I got another prompt later on saying something about a change in language. I canceled it, but the language still changed to what seemed like Chinese
- Programs had to be opened through the terminal, and I was unable to alt-tab
I am hoping that I wouldn't have to reinstall the whole thing. I just want to know if there is a way to repair the installation or reset it to default settings.
I'm in the office right now so I can't try any suggestions right away, sorry.
