I've the same issue in the question here.

It might be a duplicate question. But none of these answers work in ubuntu 13.10

Do anyone have any ideas to fix this issue in 13.10 ? I can't do anything with my computer now... thanks for helping

Press CTRL + ALT + F2 and login to a text session by typing your username and password. After you sign in type the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install wget python dconf-tools
sudo chmod +x unity-reset_0.1-8_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i unity-reset_0.1-8_all.deb
sudo apt-get -f install
dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
compiz --replace
sudo reboot

Don't worry if you get an error after compiz --replace. That's just in there for good measure.
