I've just installed MyUnity in Ubuntu 12.04 and changed the system font style but suddenly it crashed. I tried to boot it again but it crash again and again. So I log in via guest and remove MyUnity from software center but when I tried to log in via admin user, it crashed again! How do I solve this problem?

can you open your terminal ?

OK either in terminal or press ctrl+alt+F1 and login there & then do as

unity --reset

restart your PC and try again .

What code I should type before typing "unity --reset"? because when I typed that instanly, it's said that the login is incorrect. And which password I should type, keyring password or not? – Masali May 30 '12 at 14:52
Still incorrect. I've tried 10 times so far. – Masali May 30 '12 at 15:03
sorry, it was CLI I think. But I've tried it in terminal but nothing happens. – Masali May 30 '12 at 15:15
