An hour ago I installed latest updates and now Unity doesn't work anyomore, I only see desktop with icons. Manually searching I opened system monitor and found out only 400 Mb of RAM is taken which means complete Unity is turned off. Can someone help me to fix this.

Since I'm crippled I probably won't be able to provide you with all details you need because I don't have window borders, no right click menu, nothing, only Nautilus.

  • Tried, but no effect. It seems something is wrong with my account, because when I create another user Unity is fine

Solved by renaming compiz config folder. Location of this folder is: /home/username/.config/compiz-1 After renaming it restart your computer and compiz will create new folder with default settings. when I booted my computer, I still coulnd't see Unity so I opened Nautilus, searched for ccsm in /usr/bin/ and activated Unity plugin manually.
