I just got my new asus laptop from the store and wanted to use Ubuntu. But after I installed all updates and stuff, the launcher icons went invisible. They still works and text is displaying when I hover them. All the icons are invisible. I've tried to reinstall unity (http://askubuntu.com/questions/131016/how-can-i-remove-and-re-install-unity) but that does not work. I've also tried to use those commands with no progress:
unity --reset-icons unity --reset
After a reboot, the launcher is still not rendering the icons properly.
The only thing to get it work is to login with Ubuntu2 at the login screen, but I've noticed that by doing this, the computer does not use the GPU, and the graphic drivers are not running.
Does this means that I need new graphic drivers or something? Because this only happens in fallback mode.
I'm using kernel 3.5.0-4 and the automatic installed drivers from "additional drivers" program.
