    Ubuntu 13.04 Gnome3 works, but Unity does not

    I'm sure there is an easy fix for this, but after I upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04, Unity does not seem to be working. When I log in to the Gnome3 DE, everything seems fine, but when I log into the Unity DE, I have no top bar of side bar. Right-click also doesn't work. I can get a terminal emulator with Ctrl-Alt-T and Guake works fine with my F12 shortcut, but nothing works as far as the display. All I have is the wallpaper. I have taken all the updates.

    Try these command if you haven't already.

    If not installed:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
    Reset Unity:
    Code:
    setsid unity
    Reset Compiz if needed:
    Code:
    dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can".

    This was an upgrade from plain Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 13.04. I reinstalled Unity through synaptic, but it made no difference.

    I had this issue but it was my NVIDIA drivers missing the kernel module, apparently the gnome-shell LLVMpipe-fallback works while Unity just crashes and burns.

    None of this changed anything. It made the screen reset, but all I have is still just the wallpaper.

    Hi,

    Getting back to basics - copy and paste then run the following command in a terminal -

    Code:
    /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    This will show if your present setup is capable of running Unity.

    Good luck -

    No luck "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" yielded that I already had the most recent package, so I reinstalled it, and still no change.
