I have just installed Ubuntu on an old Vaio. When I turn the computer on Ubuntu loads and the coloured desk top appears but there is no tool / task bar or icons of any sort just a blank coloured page. If I press Ctrl+Alt+Del I can log out and it takes me to the log in page with the small tool bar at the top. But when logged in nothing.
What do I need to do to rectify this problem and make it function properly. Regards
