I was attempting to create a cube desktop via compizconfig-settings-manager everything crashed. I can bring up a terminal via ctrl alt F1 or get to the Internet by right clicking on screen and change desktop background get more backgrounds on line. Other than that I can not see nor get any icons or make changes.i have Ubuntu 11.04
I installed with the image, running alongside Windows 7 on my desktop. I hadn't been in Ubuntu on my laptop for awhile, and hadn't experienced the 11.04 alpha's yet, so I didn't know there would be substantial changes. Obviously, Unity instead of Gnome surprised me a bit, but I have liked it so far.
But here lies the problem. I installed Compiz and ccsm through the software center, then went to enable the desktop cube and rotating cube. I clicked enable/disable on everything that popped up, but I think I must have disabled Unity (whoops). The whole desktop basically disappeared; that is, the dock on the left was gone and the window borders disappeared. I was able to close the windows with Alt+F4, but then couldn't open anything back up. The Super key didn't activate the dock, so it's not like it was hiding. I thought no problem, it'll start back up when I reboot. No dice. Still just the background, nothing to interact with. Only way to do anything is to reboot into with Ctrl+Alt+Dlt.
how do I fix this? Ha sorry for not reading forums beforehand, as I could've avoided this problem. Haven't found any threads on how to fix it, so I decided to start my own.
I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.
i'm using a 64 bit system. i'm running cube deformation with cylinder.i am unable to make my cube caps transparent.i've deleted the original cap settings.i have also attempted to log out and in again to see if it would change.also.....my mouse is not changing to it's new pointer when i'm active in compiz.when compiz is off my mouse change is set, when it is on it stays as the white pointer unless i'm on firefox.
I upgraded to 11.04, but the updgrade crashed, and now it has some errors with Unity crashing every time I open a terminal. Is there any way to re-install without having to reconfigure all my programs? I am running a dual-boot.
Alright so i have been waiting for the release of 11.04 for quite some time now. And when i finally get it, and i boot from my liveCD, there is no Unity desktop interface. It's weird, because i can boot in other computers, and it'll work. This tells me there is something specific about my computer as to why it won't work. I can't seem to figure it out. I've heard people say to switch to classic mode, and that'll fix it. But i don't even know how to switch to classic mode.
I have problems with unity. It only shows a white menubar and a black sidebar. I use Ubuntu 11.04 running in Parallels on iMac. Classic gnome works with 3d effects. Tested unity in terminal with a command and everything was green (yes). But starting unity shows only white menubar and a black sidebar without icons and text. What can I do?
I have just upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 (from 10.10), any unity is not working. 'Ubuntu Classic' works fine (i'm on it now) but on 'Ubuntu', my background loads, but the icons and windows just flicker periodically (within a couple of seconds. I realise 11.04 is only just out, but is this a known problem? and is there a fix? code...
I had Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my main computer. Having been trying out 11.04 for quite awhile, I decided to install it on my main computer after it was officially released. I did this via an upgrade. Problem is now that I'm not getting any options for unity 3D. On the log on screen i have an option for unity 2D and unity, however both are unity 2D. My computer has a built in graphics card, nothing amazing, but i have happily used compiz effects on it previous to this.
My graphics card is up to it so why is the unity session falling back to unity 2D? Another problem that I'm having is that i cannot get the launcher in unity 2D to move out of the way. I even installed a programme called 2D Desktop Setting to try to fix this problem but selecting the various options to show, hide, autohide, etc have no effect at all and it's really frustrating having the launcher covering up the left side of my screen.
I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to Natty but to my surprise when I rebooted, the unity interface didn't appear plus the menu bar on the top was cut off. So i started seeing if 3d acceleration was on and indeed it was, but the strangest part is that if i click on the left where the unity bar is supposed to be it will open the application but the problem is that I cannot see anything, I don't know if its a bad upgrade but its really annoying, the only way natty works for me is if I start with ubuntu classic.
Well these are my system specs: Intel M Pentium 1.8 ghz 2 gb ram Intel GMA 915
I'm sure its enough to run unity since I have seen other users running it under their Eee pc perfectly later on I'll upload some pics of my desktop all ruined, i've tried already typing under terminar unity --reset but after refreshing everything the desktop becomes even more unstable than.
I have a netbook with Ubuntu 10.10 with the netbook unity desktop. I have read that clicking the Ubuntu logo top left of the screen should open an 'expose' style switcher of all running applications. However when I click the logo it simply opens a menu screen with large icons labeled Web, Music, Photos & Videos, Games, Email & Chat, Office, Files & Folders and Get more Apps. See attached.
I got several WM/DE installed in my Ubuntu 11.04 Trying to switching them in login menu some works and some doesn't. when it doesn't work, it just comes back to login screen with black screen appearing for short time, almost flashing. LXDE did not work before, when I only had default DE comes with ubuntu and LXDE additionally installed. But now it seems it works after installing some other WM. WM doesn't work currently; IceWM, JWM.
I have no idea what happened. When I restarted my laptop a message telling me that my hardware cannot support Unity came up. This is quite impossible, because I've been running Unity with no problems since 11.04 was released.
Compiz says that the interface is unity, and when I checked in login screen, it's not set to Ubuntu Classic or anything, just Ubuntu.
I've got big problems with ubuntu 11.04 (32 Bit, on Lenovo T500 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650)First of all i have to boot from the installation cd with the option "nomodeset".Also for the first boot from harddisk i have to set this option. After i have installed the proprietary ATI drivers i can boot with the default options but unity won't start....n dmesg i found following messages:Quote:

I've just upgraded my Ubuntu version a week ago and got a problem that the Unity UI won't running after upgrade. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 14R which is i think is more than capable for running Unity 3D. When I rebooted after upgrade there was just a blank wallpaper screen, without Unity interface at all.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.4. I've played with different versions of Picasa, installing the Linux version via Ubuntu Software Center and also using Wine. At a certain point I had several versions of the application installed and things were getting. When I search for Picasa in the Unity application search field (clicking the button with the dot in the centre at the top left of my screen) I got several results for Picasa, some of which when clicked would start Picasa and some which wouldn't. When I remove all versions of Picasa both from Wine and native I still get some results for Picasa which don't start Picasa when clicked.
I've just upgraded to 11.04 and really like it so far, everything seems to be running smoothly and I had no issues apart from a broken Emerald which I removed (and installed compiz-gnome and then made gtk-window-decorator the default, which fixed Unity segfaulting on Emerald).
My problem now is that when I use the Unity dash to search for something, it takes a while to search and then finds nothing. I'm pretty sure I should have things like "text editor", "gimp", "update manager", so I would think this is some manner of bug.
In addition to that, the following buttons don't do anything if I click on them:
- Media Apps - Internet Apps - More Apps - Find Files
1. I didn't like the icon theme and changed it to Ubuntu Mono Light. But is there a way to get the Min/Max/Close buttons to how they are in Radiance when maximized, or is that dependant on something else?
2. Is there a way to disable the Unity dock, but not the Unity feature where the Min/Max/Close go into the command bar?
Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.
However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher? What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).
This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.
I downloaded and installed compiz, and edited settings in simple compizconfig manager. The 3D effect of desktop is assigned ' none '. But when I try to rotate the cube, it's a cylinder. I rechecked the settings, but is still set to ' none '.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 and I am running it on Ubuntu classic due to not caring for Unity very much. I have an Acer Aspire 5739 and a Nvidia GEForce GT 130M graphics card. Is there any way to have a 3D desktop cube again?
I have read many posts on here and else where and still have not managed to get it working. (I am fairly new to Linux btw so just try to keep that in mind when replying)
I've recently enabled the fun stuff with compiz but I've run into a sort of problem... I want 9 desktops in a 3x3 grid (yeah, weird I know) but if I'm using the cube I can only rotate left and right... which is pretty weak sauce. Is there any way to (preferred) have desktops on the top and bottom of the cube and be able to bind a key combo to rotate up and down (ctrl-alt-up/down)? I *could* put 9 desktops in a row, but I really don't like that solution - it takes too many flips to make it from one desktop to another.
Compiz is all full of beautiful (especially burning the windows on close)
