Unfortunately that still doesn't work. Is there a way of just reinstalling everything perhaps?

That definitely works. I get the unity desktop, but with no icons in the top right and no fancy effects

The file is completely empty apart from the first line which says: /usr/sbin/lightdm What else could the problem be?

Sorry, I should've specified. I installed the xubuntu desktop environment. I'll update the post.

Okay mango, I entered that command and unfortunately I still do not get anything at start up. I'm worried maybe my graphics driver has been removed (somehow!) which is why I'm not getting any 3d effects.

Ubuntu Installation. I can get to my desktop if I type startx in the command line. Still no login screen unfortunately. The desktop has my unity sidebar but no buttons at the top right. Seems to be the 2d version as no visual effects

I successfully logged in by doing control + alt + F2 and logging in through the command line.

Thank you for the response but this doesn't seem to have fixed it. I'm still getting a black screen and I even tried reinstalling lightdm and ubuntu-desktop.
