    Angry remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)

    Hi
    My unity no longer works... I have tried getting it back with
    Code:
     unity --reset
    and
    Code:
     unity --replace
    whicch is what i was told to do in Natty, in Terminal and from the tty. I've also tried reinstalling it through synaptic...
    Neither of those seem to work. It's only a test partition, but still, i'd like to find a way to get unity back, i was beginning to like it

    Any advice please?

    Re: remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)

    Good luck. I've been using Ubuntu since 7.04, installed 11.10 this weekend -- and think this is the worst version I've ever encountered, bar none!!

    I only installed this on Saturday and already, it's crashed on me over a half dozen times and frozen on me nearly as many.

    I installed ccsm to make the same minor tweaks as I did successfully in 11.04 and -- NOW -- No unity anymore. Probably same thing as you get.

    Maybe if Canonical would quit trying to force cell-phone desktops on people and pushing us all into the cloud, they could take some time and stop pushing out garbage like this.

    I even tried Recovery Mode -- something that always worked with the previous record-bad version (10.10), but even that doesn't work!

    I'm going to post in the General forum to see if anyone knows HOW to recovery from this. But, given the poor level of this release, I'm guessing a reinstall is going to be needed.

    Re: remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)

    You're in luck -- I found the solution!!

    I tried each of the following in turn, hoping to NOT have to reinstall compiz and unity, so maybe you won't have to go that far -- I did.

    For each of these, do the following:
    1) Exit the desktop and get into tty mode -- using Ctl+alt+F1
    2) Enter ALL of the commands
    3) Press Ctl_Alt_F7 to get the desktop back
    4) If it's all back, you're done

    First, try these commands:
    gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1
    gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compizconfig-1

    Second, try these commands:
    rm ~/.compiz-1/session/*
    rm ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/config

    If these didn't return the unity stuff, then you'll have to uninstall and reinstall, as follows:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge compiz*
    rm -rf .compiz-1
    rm -rf .gconf/apps/compiz*
    sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-core
    sudo apt-get install unity

    NOW, when you return to the desktop, you should have Unity again.

    You may have to open System Settings -->< Display and reconfigure your displays, if you have multiple monitors or non-default resolution set -- I did.

    NOW, isn't this "intuitively obvious to the most casual observer"?? This must be absurdly simple to folks coming over from MS Windows who simply try to shrink the icons in the Unity bar (which is all I did).

    Neither of those seem to work. It's only a test partition, but still, i'd like to find a way to get unity back, i was beginning to like it

    Any advice please?
    Get into compizconfig settings manager (ccsm) and check the box for the Unity plugin. Somehow, when you install and open ccsm, this thing gets unchecked and Unity 3d no longer works.

    I hope you're right JasonR. because i dont have two computers to follow mark phelps' instructions on ... But i think mine's more thoroughly broken than that. Good thing i installed docky after the first glitches or i'd be running everything in terminal...

    Re: remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)

    Mine was broken like that with the line "unity-panel-service: no process found" coming up whatever i did to fix it.
    Finally I purged the xorg edgers ppa and everything went back to normal.
    Just another thing to check out, just in case you have that ppa for the Xorg and drivers updates.

    Re: remove and reinstall dead unity? (oneiric)

    I got that message too, but i didn't have that ppa. I had shrunk the unity icons ...
    But now i can't even get a terminal with ctrl + alt + T so i think i'll give up and reinstall.

    Long live Natty with Gnome 2!!

    Only thing that worked like a charm on my Toshiba satellite with Oneiric system which wouldn't hide the task bar. Thanks for sharing.
