The top panel and
Unity launcher have disappeared in Ubuntu 14.04. Also cannot access the terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T.
I have tried every solution for this issue that I can find, from re-installing unity and compiz to resetting Unity and everything. I've gone into the compiz manager and reactivated Unity.
Nothing has worked.
When trying to reset Unity, or do anything with it really, I get this message
(process:6332): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: Could not connect: Connection refused
EDIT: Installed 14.04 a day ago. The issue happened after a reboot. After installing
export DISPLAY=:0on a separate tty, following the procedure outlined in askubuntu.com/questions/457016/… to set the
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESSvariable and finally running
dconf reset -f /org/compiz/did the trick for me.

suto get into my original account. I'm wondering if its possible to copy the GUI setup from the new user to my old one? If so, what should I copy?
sudo dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
sourcedo I have to specify?
