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

I've been using Ubuntu (currently 13.04) for several months now. I was wondering if it's typical to have to reset compiz and unity (with dfconf reset -f /org/compiz and setsid unity) after every linux-headers/linux-generic upgrade.

Right after that on the first boot, I am prompted with the desktop having no bars. I tried looking for other cleaner methods such as just re-installing the ATI proprietary drivers, cleaning the compiz-1 folder, but none of them worked.

Is there any other way to prevent this behavior other than resetting both compiz and unity configurations?
