I am having issues with Ubuntu. I tried to upgrade to 13.04. I get stuck in a login loop, but I am able to login using Ctrl+ Alt+F3. After that, I have to use a short-cut to open the terminal and enter a couple of commands that I found on this site to make the sidebar appear.
It is very cumbersome to have to do this every time I start up Ubuntu. Is there a way to permanently fix these problems?? It's driving me crazy.
