Recently, I was meddling with ccsm and the window kept refreshing with every plugin addition (which is normal i suppose). However, after i enabled SVG (I dont think this is relevant but i included it anyway) under image loading, suddenly it got hung! Unity crashed, as i couldn't see a top bar or a launcher! My window decorations were out too! I restarted the computer hoping it would fix anything, but it didn't work!
Right now, all i can see on the screen in my mouse, the wallpaper and my desktop icons. Right click works for me, and i can drag icons around the desktop. I can even run chrome (using docky which works too (except its in 2D, not in 3D))
I tried using unity --reset and unity --replace from the recovery console, but every time it hung.
Initializing core options...done
When I tried running compiz --replace, it came back with this
compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: core compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: core compiz (core) - Fatal: Couldn't open display compiz (core) - Info: Stopping plugin: core compiz (core) - Info: Unloading plugin: core
When I try running metacity --replace:
Window manager error: unable to open X display
When I try to run ccsm from the recovery, It doesn't start up
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning) Traceback (most recent call last): File"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ccm/__init__.py", line 1, in <module> from ccm.Conflicts import * File"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ccm/Conflicts.py", line 26, in <module> from ccm.Constants import * File"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ccm/Constants.py", line 30, in <module> CurrentScreenNum = gtk.gdk.display_get_default().get_default_screen().get_number() AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_default_screen'
Please help me, and ask if you need any more info. XD
Thanks a ton! Ciao
