Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Well i was working on maya when suddenly my keyboard and mouse stopped responding so i had to press the system reset button. After that i recovered my system using fsck.

I even tried rm -rf .gnome/.gconfd from my home directory in a virtual teminal (by pressing CTRL + ALT+F1)

But I still was not able to login with Gnome classic or just gnome selected, however if i change desktop environment to Gnome with no effects or unity everything works fine...

What might be wrong , since I am new to Ubuntu and still learning I need some help to get back to Gnome classic. Even Gnome with no effects is fine but I do not like the close, minimize and restore button on the left ..
