My launcher disappeared, and won't come back.
 
I had just installed the Nvidia driver. So I suspect that has something to do with it.

-Ubuntu 12.04
-Dell XPS L702X (laptop)
-Nvidia GeForce GT 555M
-i7 2.4GHz

Which launcher the whole desktop?

The strip, along the left side. Yes, I tried placing the pointer on the left edge of the screen. Also, in the preferences, in appearance, it insists that it is there. I can only access the preferences by rt-clicking on the desktop, and selecting change background. From there, I can go to 'all preferences'. I can't get to any applications, without the launcher, as far as I know.

maybe login single-user mode & reinstall unity desktop.

EDDY1 05-07-2013 03:45 PM

Thanks EDDY1, but no luck, still won't come back. :/

What have you tried?
Can you login to single-user mode?
