After an update, the dock icons on unity 3d are gone. In 2d mode it's normal.

Now I don't know what to do. I already tried replace and reset commands, remove and install unity but nothing works for me.

Unity's bar is still there but there are no icons. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (3.4.0.-030400-generic)

How can I fix this issue?

Try booting from older officially installed kernel (3.2..) and see if that problem still persists – atenz Jul 20 '12 at 12:25
"Please see" : doesn't work Using. Using officially installed kernel doesn't fix it. – jordan Jul 20 '12 at 14:19
Hello all.After last upgrade, my icons came back, but now my terminal crashed. It does not refresh after a 'ls' for example. What should I do? – jordan Aug 27 '12 at 17:56
