After logging in, the desktop appears, and seems to work fine (I can start applications from desktop icons, for example, and right clicking on the desktop area brings up the expected context menu), but there's no menu bar and no dash. How can I fix/diagnose this problem?
This is a very standard clean Ubuntu 11.04 install with only a few fairly standard applications added, such as Chrome, Dropbox and Skype. The only login style that appears to work is "Ubuntu (Safe Mode)"--the two Ubuntu Class styles give the same results as "Ubuntu". I've tried looking in
/var/log for messages but there's nothing obvious.
If I create another user account, and login as that user, everything works as expected.
