Unity doesn’t load, no Launcher, no Dash appears

I just upgraded my 12.04 system to 12.10, but only seem to be able to access the applications for which i had shortcuts on the desktop. No sidebar or global menu show up at all.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

You can try typing on a terminal (pressing CTRL + ALT + T):

unity --reset

This will reset your unity settings.
