View Full Version : [ubuntu] launcher and dock gone

April 29th, 2011, 12:07 AM
After foolishly touching a few compiz settings, long story short, the side launcher and top bar in unity are gone. How can i get them back? I don't really know how to do anything without them either, so how can I even do it?

To reset Unity:
- press Ctrl+Alt+T to launch a terminal
- run:

unity --reset- relogin


EDIT: If you haven't fixed it already, I just earlier noticed that without having the "Dash" running, Ctrl+Alt+T will also not work. But you can instead create a launcher at the desktop with either "gnome-terminal" or the command itself, or log in to "Ubuntu Classic" or "Ubuntu Classic (No effects)".

For another method see my earlier post:
