I have lenovo thinkpad T520. Just updated to 13.04. I can see desktop icons, but no menu. I can start terminal, but I cannot close windows, move them or resize them. Also, Alt+Tab does not work. I have tried a few things, such as menu bar and launcher missing in ubuntu 13.04

but no luck. Please help, I've waisted a whole day on this.

Could you possibly take a screenshot? Do you have access to the launcher? – Seth Jan 13 '14 at 4:41
Does this help? Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears – minerz029 Jan 13 '14 at 5:18
