    'Empty' desktop after i installed nvidia drivers, no window borders and such

    I have seen that there are already forums about this problems but alas, they didn't help me. I installed the Nvidia drivers(Nvidia-current) on Ubuntu 13.4(witch was working quite nicely before that but i needed the drivers so a certain game would run without crashing on me, since that's what the forums said i needed to do.),and after reboot i come to an empty desktop, no side bar launcher thingy, "start menu" or anything, as well as my borders of my windows are gone, and from what i've searched, i believe basically Unity isn't running. Luckuly enough i could right click-create a new folder and i searched for mozzila to get here.
    I tried to purge unninstall nvidia and nvidia current , and they did unninstall, then reboot, but it didn't fix anything.
    Tried to launch the unitiy, (though ccsm i belive) witch made a big load of pop ups that other programs are not running as well, and after enabling averything...nothing happened. Reboot after that didn't work ether.
    Reinstall nvidia current back didn't help.
    Don't remeber if i did anyhting apart from that, i've been at this for quite a while now
    So, if anyone can help me, that would be very appreciated ^^

    Exclamation Re: 'Empty' desktop after i installed nvidia drivers, no window borders and such

    Please post errors with code tags:

    (code)Compositing isn't available(/code)

    Replace parenthesis with brackets:

    Code:
    Compositing isn't available
    As for the unity problem, looks like the driver you have does not support effects (thus why the errors say compositing isn't available; compositing=effects).
    Looks like you are running ubuntu 12.10 or 13.04 (unity plug-in in compiz). If you have 13.04 then in a terminal, type:

    Code:
    software-properties-gtk
    Wait.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. ....
    Once it shows up, go to the "Additional Drivers" tab, and choose the open-source driver. Apply the changes. Then in the terminal, type:

    Code:
    gnome-session-quit --power-off
    Choose restart. If nothing appears, then:

    Code:
    sudo reboot
    Enter password. If the PC freezes during restart, press and hold the power-button, as the system is already halted:



    Wait..............

    Problem solved! Should anything happen (any error message), please post them here with code tags.

    Re: 'Empty' desktop after i installed nvidia drivers, no window borders and such

    As much as i'd love to click the install button on that driver that fixes everything..there is nothing there. When i open up the additional drivers tab, it is empty.
    At the bottom, it says "No proprietery drivers are in use".

    Code:
     Also, this is just a little test to see if i get it right.

    YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Try:
    
    
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati && gnome-session-quit --power-off
    installs open-source driver and shows the reboot dialog to reboot.
    Hope this fixes it!

    Did it! and,
    Sorry to dissapoint you, but i'm an unlucky person ^^
    Yeah, it Didn't work, also, i do believe it said that i already have that driver at the latest version. I copied the code without the reboot thingie, and i do believe this is exactly what it said the first time:
    Code:
    xserver-xorg-video-ati is already the newest version.
    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
      libvdpau1
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove it.

    Try:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current
    If you get a black screen, press the power-button. Wait a couple of minutes...

    Start the PC. Black-screen again, then choose "recovery mode" and FailSafeX.

    Still get a black screen, make an ubuntu Live DVD and re-install (remember to not change the graphics driver). Copy everything you need to a USB (as files in the live media and files in the partition will get ERASED).

    If your machine has two video cards, as do many laptops, the "discrete" Nvidia card will be invisible until it is enabled in the BIOS. If you are using such a machine, make sure the Nvidia is enabled, then see what "Additional Drivers" says.

    But i neeeeed an updated nvidia driver D: ..i think
    removing nvidia current fixed nothing.
    So i restarted in recovery mode, and after selecting failSafeX, it gives me an option to start in low graphics, something esle or quit and such, however, i cannot selct any mode. I don't have a cursor there and keyboard does nothing. Any help with that? Since i don't really want to reinstal unless it's the only thing possible.
