I was running 12.04 and after an unusually long shutdown (3 minutes, no updates installed) most of my programs have lost partial to major functionality - menus don't work, cannot scale/resize minimize or close programs without using shortcut keys.
In addition, I only have one workspace available now too. Settings show 4 in number, but only one shows up, cannot switch to another.
Tried to fix the problem by upgrading to 12.10, but it still persists. Am I looking at a complete clean install?
