    Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation

    Hi.

    I've messed up my ubuntu 13.04.
    I've installed nvidia drivers with this commands (found on a STEAM guide):

    apt-get install nvidia-experimental-310
    apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

    But now unity does not load. After login I only get the wallpaper, nothing more.
    I already purged this packages and tried to reinstall ubuntu-desktop but I still get the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    use synaptic to purge the installed nvidia packages, drop the xorg.conf too if it exist, then install nvidia-313-updates

    Re: Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation

    Tried to reinstall unity and ubuntu-desktop and nothing.
    Tried to reset unity, but I'm getting an error:

    dconf reset -f /org/compiz/

    Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch= (...): Child process exited with code 1


    Have some errors on xsession-error file:
    compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'opengl' not loaded.
    (...)
    I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/home/myuser/.compiz/session/(...)

    I'm getting the same thing with the 304.84 nvidia driver , I get the unity desktop but no top bar and no launcher , rt click on the desktop lets you start a terminal and you can launch things that way ( you may need nautilus open terminal installed) , Gnome-shell works normally so maybe its a compiz problem .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    I usually log into gnome-fallback, and also get that decorator issue: no titlebar, cant resize window, buttons close/minimize/maximize removed, only one workplace available. Removing compiz does not help (i've purged then reinstalled it too, but no more luck), so compiz should not be the faulty package.
    I've also seen a mutter package(s) upgrade; that one could have pushed that trouble, but i'm not sure; still investigated before reporting.
    Here unity/gnome-shell/gnome-fallback can be loaded normally on i386.

    1. I purge all nvidia-*.
    2. Reboot
    3. Login
    4. Launch gnome-terminal
    5. Install ccsm
    6. Run ccsm
    7. Enable Unity Plugin
    8. Resolv conflicts with keys
