    Compiz: Top and left bar disappeared

    Hey guys. I just recently moved to Ubuntu from accidently deleting Windows. Anyways i was messing around, with compiz settings (I think), I don't remember what I clicked on. The top bar disappeared and the bar on the left also disappeared. I was able to log out and boot into Ubuntu 2d (what I'm using now). Has this happened to anyone else? If so what was done to fix it?

    It depends on which version of Ubuntu you are using. If 12.04 try this http://www.webupd8.org/2011/04/how-t...-icons-or.html, if 12.10 try this http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/how-t...in-ubuntu.html. NOTE: I don't use unity anymore so I don't know if these work or not.

    Moving your post to a better forum. Though you have a Dell the problem is not specific to Dell.

    Slightly off-topic: A lighter version like Xubuntu is a good choice for medium-old hardware.

    More speed, less heat. You can try in a live boot.
