This question already has an answer here:
I logged into Ubuntu and my menu bar and launch bar are gone.
I cannot use Ubuntu as there as the only this I see is my wallpaper. I have restarted and it has not done anything.
I can open the terminal, and I can run commands, but that is all I can do.
As you can see I don't even have the ability to close, maximise or minimise windows (I can close by using alt+f4 though.)
I have tried various command like alt+f2 and other commands, but these don't appear to work.
Is there a way in the terminal to open the home folder as a window? If I can have a folder open, then I can at least use Ubuntu to an extent.
Thanks in advance.
