I'm using a Ubuntu 10.10 on a Barton 2500 + MX440 legacy box, and I'm using Nvidia driver 96.xx.
If I login with GNOME(default session), the task bar(the bottom bar) and the system bar(the upper bar) do not show up. If I start applications like firefox from desktop shortcut, the application can work normally.
If I choose GNOME(failsafe), the whole desktop shows up as it should.
Where can I find a log to tell what is wrong? How can I possibly fix the problem?
