I've installed Ubuntu 14.04 and later installed Mate desktop environment. I did not like it and wanted to switch back to Ubuntu Unity. I removed Mate Desktop from the system also. But I have several issues.
- Loading screen while booting shows Ubuntu-Mate background.
- Login screen still the same as of Mate
- 2 Network icons at top bar
- Little slower than before to load the whole desktop after pressing putting password on login screen.
Please help me get back to original Ubuntu.
Followed the following link to install it.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/ppa sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/trusty-mate sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-mate-core ubuntu-mate-desktop
And then just switched back using the option in login page (choosing the desired desktop env). After I see loading pages are still Mate based, I tried to remove ..
sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-mate-core ubuntu-mate-desktop
still same login page and loading page, then tried changing display manager to lighdm
sudo apt-get install lightdm
and choosing the default as lightdm
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Still no luck. :(
