Unity, Gnome 3 give blank desktop in Ubuntu 11.10
Dear Linux Gurus,
I used to be a happy Ubuntu 11.04 user until yesterday. Unfortunately I upgraded to 11.10 yesterday.
Now When I log in using Unity. Nothing shows up on desktop except the wallpaper and mouse pointer. Neither ctrl+alt+t nor alt + f2 works.
only thing that works is ctrl+alt+del which logs out the system.
Unity2D works though. But it's very slow and acts awkward.
I tried installing Gnome.
Gnome classic works but Gnome 3 gives the blank desktop as Unity.
What's going on? Any Ideas? How do i fix this problem?
Thanks in advance!
