    I speak from experience. There are a gazillion small conflicts with 'unity-settings-daemon' and 'unity-control-center'.
    Any way to set unity to default settings?

    I gave up and reinstalled. What meta-packages had you installed?

    But the latest version of what package?

    Had you tried other desktop environments?

    You can look in /var/log/apt:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ ls /var/log/apt
    history.log  history.log.1.gz  term.log  term.log.1.gz
    Usually the history.log is most useful, but notice that once it gets about so big the older parts of the log get archived as .1.gz, .2.gz, etc, etc.

    Of all the desktop environments you've tried in 14.04 which did you like the best?

    After trying alot, my honest opinion is that Ubuntu is still the best.
    Every other desktop enviroment has cool little tweaks but overall I like Ubuntu the most.

    Now i've added the Numix theme to my Ubuntu to give it a bit of a nicer look to it.

    I see you've installed 'gnome-shell', 'gnome-shell-extensions', 'gnome-session-flashback, 'fvwm-crystal', and 'unity8-desktop-session-mir'. Then you later purged the meta-packages but just running autoremove leaves a lot of cruft.

    If you give me about 24 hours I'll cook up some commands to try and get back to a pure Ubuntu but even then there are no guarantees.

    Do yourself a favor though and remove 'tasksel' before it eats your whole desktop:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...el/+bug/574287

    That bug has reared it's head off and on for many years.

    Thanks for all of your effort in advance.

    The link you send me already gave me an error when i try the second test case ^^

    Code:
    Can't call method "set" on an undefined value at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd.pm line 126, <GEN0> line 5.Use of uninitialized value $ret in scalar chomp at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Client/ConfModule.pm line 132, <STDIN> line 4.

    DO NOT run any of the test cases in that bug report!

    I just noticed you had installed the package 'tasksel' which can be quite hazardous, in that it forcefully blows up the whole OS! So I said just "remove tasksel"!

    I also notice that you installed bum and rcconf. Why?

    Were you following some guide like this:

    If so just chalk it up to experience and reinstall.
