I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10. I am trying to open the dash home, but the sidebar disappears until I click out of it. The dash itself never shows up. sometimes the top of the screen fuzzes up a little bit, but still no dash home.

Can you provide a little more information about that ? Your question is not clear enough to provide any assistance. Maybe a couple screenshots could help ? – Gufran Dec 17 '12 at 13:07

You can also try reinstalling Unity. Ctrl+Alt+T and then

sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity
