This is a problem that started very recently: every time I turn my computer on, Ubuntu boots into a classic GNOME desktop session instead of Unity, which is set to the default login option. Also, the GNOME desktop loads a resolution of 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024, which is my default resolution. There is no option to put the resolution back in 1280x1024. Logging out and back in doesn't fix the problem. Only opening a terminal and typing
unity --reset seems to correct this. Afterwards, Unity works in the right resolution without any problems.
I'm using nVidia 8500GT and the current proprietary dirver installed through the "additional drivers" program.
Anyone has any idea what might be causing this?
