I have a recent installation of Ubuntu 18.04.1.

When I open a terminal, a tab shows in the taskbar for a few sencods but then it fades away. The same with Files

I've seen other users suggest to change the language but did not work for me.

Not much I can add for now


I just moved the .gnome folder from tty2. Pressed Ctrl + Alt + F2 to log in into tty2 then used

mv .gnome .gnome.backup

This is /home/myuser/

And voila! it's working again

  • There is no hidden .gnome folder! – vanadium Jan 31 at 12:06
