make sure you have all of the components of the ubuntu desktop installed. One easy way to do this is to run this in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

That will likely add back in ubuntuone-client, but then you can just remove ubuntuone-client with

sudo apt-get remove ubuntuone-client

I'd also recommend logging out and back in again to make sure all components are running.
