I'm a beginner to Ubuntu/Linux and I have a problem: Unity is not loading! When I choose Unity in the log-in screen, I get notifications and I can see the mouse, but that's it.
I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed, along with Bumblebee/Primus. I had no issues whatsoever, until I decided to try the numix-theme and the numix icon pack. I added the PPA and installed it, but when I logged off and logged back on, nothing showed up. I panicked, and in tty1, I purged numix-* but that did not solve the issue.
To get by day-to-day use, I installed gnome-flashback, and among those environments, only the metacity one works. (The compiz one does not.) I've tried installing the unity-tweak-tool to reset unit, installing dconf and doing:
dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
but that didn't work either. One site even told me to delete
/org/compiz/, but that did not resolve the issue.
When I checked
ccsm, the Unity plugin had a check to it.
I also tried with Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears, but it gets stuck on "loading icons".
Any help will be awesome!
