Neither the window manager, I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 in a Hp Pavilion dv2000, the installation was fine except for some annoying graphic glitches, so I decide to install the nvidia Drivers from xorg-edgers/319, when I rebooted the laptop, Unity was gone. I tried by installiin th elinux.generic-headers, installing th 173 and current package instead of the 319 from xorg-edgers, but nothing. Any thoughts on how to fix it?

I would suggest giving the mainline kernel a try, the stock 3.8.0-19-generic kernel has been known to act up with nvidia – GM-Script-Writer-62850 May 1 '13 at 17:02
