View Full Version : Ubuntu desktop window manager gone after upgrade [14.04]

About a year ago i was having graphics issues that resulted in no gui at all, and so I abandoned ubuntu for a while. I tried upgrading my instillation from 12.04 to 14.04 and after some more trouble I managed to get to a very broken login screen. Most of the text had a solid white background and sometimes was missing. After logging in, everything goes away except for the desktop background and "ubuntu 12.04 LTS" in the corner even though I have upgraded. I managed to run some programs from tty1 and I took a screenshot, and there appears to be no desktop window manager at all, as i can't move windows, minimize them, or even give different windows focus.
