    To restart unity shell or compiz on 12.10 and 13.04:

    Restart unity without restart compiz, in terminal:

    Code:
    setsid unity
    Restart unity by restarting compiz:

    Code:
    setsid compiz --replace

    Re: Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation

    I've tried that already, and nothing.

    I have a bunch of errors about OpenGL in my xsession-errors:

    Code:
    compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'opengl' not loaded.
    I've searched about this error and tried some things to fix this opengl error, but none worked.
    RR was working great until I followed this guide from steam:
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile...27235417#25477

    I've tried everything and can't fix unity :\
    Is my only option format and reinstall RR?

    Re: Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation

    I got unity working again , heres how . I installed the nvidia 304 updates and the nvidia settings updates ( I don't know if this had anything to do with it ) , I reinstalled unity rebooted and loged into unity ( ubunty default ) still no top bar and launcher , then I brought up ccsm and enabled the unity plugin , it said it conflicted with 2 gnome settings and asked to disable them I clicked disable them and unity came up working . I logged out of unity and into gnome-shell and it also seems to be normal . I logged out of gnome-shell and back into unity and it is still working so it may be as simple as reinstalling unity and letting it disable the 2 things it asks to in ccsm .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    yeah, compiz becomes a pain: there is no schemas inside dconf

    Unity has not worked correctly, since I started running Gnome 3 Staging.

    However, if I load Unity from inside a Gnome-Shell session, it works fine.

    Might want to try that...

    • Login to GS
    • Open a terminal, type:
      Code:
      unity --replace &
    • Press [Enter]
    • Close terminal, when dialog lags out (decorator error)


    Everything, including Compiz, works perfectly for me.

    Oh, okay! Sorry!

    I should have kept reading.

    Glad you got it sorted...

    I can confirm that the above worked for me also

    Re: Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation

    After trying many things with no success I finally solved my problem

    1. Format
    2. Install RR again

    It worked for me too! I had this same issue with the final version of RR released yesterday.
    Thanks a lot, Ronacc
