- Ubuntu 16.04
- compiz 0.9.12.3
- unity 7.4.5+16.04.20180221-0ubutu1
I have 0 packages to update.
I have an empty screen. The background colour is correct, but the rest of the UI has not loaded. I can open a terminal and then run programmes such as firefox, but I can't change the window sizes or summon their menus by pressing alt. The top bar with the time, internet connection status, etc. is not visible. I can't see the Ubuntu equivalent of the start menu.
Basically unity is not running.
When I log in I get a crash report regarding
compiz-config-profile-setter with the error message as in the title. The screen was as I described above. I ran
apt-get upgrade but unity is still broken.
I tried running
compiz --replace but nothing changed.
Has anyone encountered this? How can I fix it?
