    Missing side and top panel in unity

    I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu 12.10. Everything is fine up to and including log-in. After log-in, I can't see the side or top panels on my desktop. I've tried various suggestions from people with the same problem but no success.

    I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model Z590c with a nVidia GeForce 9300 m GS video card. I don't think I used any nVidia drivers in Ubuntu 12.04 because of some video issues.

    Any suggestions please?

    Hi raj727.

    Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T

    Then run:
    Code:
    unity --reset
    Let it run for a few minutes.

    Open another terminal and restart your machine:
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    I got an error message:

    WARNING: no DISPLAY variable set, setting it to :0
    ERROR: the reset option is now deprecated

    My bad. That option is indeed deprecated.

    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:amith/ubuntutools
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install unity-reset
    Then:
    Code:
    unity-reset
    Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    I'm having a problem logging onto my wifi. I get a message to check my internet connection. I keep getting disconnected for some reason. I can't get to the dock which I would use to enter my wifi password.

    I'm asked for an authentication to a network that is not mine. How would I get to my wifi network?
