hey everyone i updated my school computer to 11.04 for fun and it loads up just fine i can log in and do work, but I have lost my tool bars, it gives me an error with docky needing compositing and the busy symbol never goes away. instead of have a regular cursor I have a busy symbol all the time, it has been like this now for 2 days.

Something to warm the hearts of fellow crawlers living at the prompt:

$ rm carebear.cute
rm: cannot remove `carebear.cute': Permission denied
$ choke -f carebear.cute

The year 'of the desktop' ( insert opensarcasmmark here ) is nearly over. Hope to see where unity and the gnome shell are taking us.
