I just upgraded to 11.04. Now, after I log in all I get is the background and a cursor (which I can move, no panel, no desktop icons, etc.). Same thing happens if I select classic mode. I tried installing nvidia 173 drivers (instead of nvidia-current) and after that classic mode works again. However I don't want to be using so old graphics drivers (and I'd really like to try out Unity).
My machine is a Dell Precision M65 laptop which contains a GeForce 350M graphics card.
I'm not sure where to start looking for problems, as I'm only guessing that this is a graphics driver problem (usually a pretty solid guess). Any thoughts?
