Re: Compiz fails, no unity, Blank desktop after 13.04 update
I also tried:
None of these affected the problem. the only change I noted was that the Software & Udates icon was misssing from System Settings.
display:0 compiz --replace # gave "Fatal: couldnt open display2
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 # gave: Warning Client unable toconnect to D-bus daemon, unable to autolaunch D-Bus daemon -
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compizconfig-1 # - withoutdisplay for X11
dpkg-reconfigure compiz-gnome compiz gnome-control-center
Both 'dpkg' and 'apt-get install --reinstall compiz-gnome compiz gnome-control-center' gave errors similar to those with gconftool.
Also 'startx' gave the Desktop screen but hung on "Loading extension GLX' , However:
In view of these error messages I installed the 313-updates driver from Additional Drivers, rebooted, and - touch wood - things seem back to normal. 'apt-get install --reinstall compiz-gnome compiz gnome-control-center' no longer gives error messages.
glxinfo | grep -i opengl # gave normal output for Nouveau.
But I would still like an answer to my previous question: What PATH should I add to this command?:
Chao!, bogan. I will give it a few days before marking Solved.
dconf -f /org/compiz/ PATH

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
