Re: Unity not loading after nvidia drivers installation
I have had the same 13.04 Blank Desktop with five different installations running different Nvidia cards and drivers, and none of the suggestions in this Thread - or others - worked for me.
In nearly all of them I got errors similar to SkylineGTR
Or "GLX plug-in not loaded' or 'unable to open display'.
Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch= (...): Child process exited with code 1
However, the Guest account still worked correctly, as did a new Administration account and Fallback.
The cure of the problems on all my installations was effected by the following: run from a terminal in Fallback mode to enter the '--reset-unity' command included in Unity-Tweak-Tool:
On rebooting all the log-in options' displays were correct and with intact Launchers and Panels.
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback # if not already installed and log-in to 'fallback'.
sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool
gksudo unity-tweak-tool --reset-unity
Warning: You are about to reset unity to its default configuration.
It is normal for your desktop to flicker during the process.
Type yes to continue, anything else to exit. Do You wish to continue? _
Running the same commands when logged into the faulty Ubuntu/Unity Blank Desktop gave a 'Can not open display' message and did nothing.
It is probable - though I have not tried it - that the other compiz/unity reset commands would also work if run in the same way, from a desktop option that is working.
See my Thread in Ubuntu+1 for even more suggested cures:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2136435
