Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Really odd issue here, Whenever I log out, Ubuntu looses all settings for the launcher preferences - I get the defaults again, that is, from the top - Home, Firefox, Libreoffice Writer, Calc and Impress, Software Centre, Ubuntu One, then Workspace, Applications and Files. Anything I add is reset to these on logout. My Network preferences are lost (not too much of an issue, just annoying).

The only thing that stays seems to be the theme...

I've tried resetting gnome and unity, which doesn't fix it. I've tried the solution in this question and it didn't work:

Nope - it didn't work. Thanks anyway –  Ethereality Jul 30 '11 at 12:53
I've re-opened your post so it can be addressed. –  Marco Ceppi Jul 30 '11 at 16:02
This happened to me too, when I installed Gnome 3 and got rid of Unity, and then moved back to Unity. I think the original Ubuntu installation gets messed up. So I had to do a fresh install. –  Kevin Jul 30 '11 at 16:07
Have you tried creating a new user and seeing if the issue exists for that user? –  Dariel Dato-on Jul 30 '11 at 22:05
