My HUD is not working after I upgraded from 11.04 (and or 11.10).

It prompts for command and it tries loading for 4 seconds then gives up.

In most cases it will work after you install this package.

sudo apt-get install indicator-appmenu-tools

I managed to solve my HUD problem by clearing out the ~/.cache folder.

Did you upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10? Otherwise I bet your problem was different than OP's. – Braiam Oct 29 '13 at 13:51
