I am using 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my simple Desktop-PC (3GHz Intel P4, 1GB RAM, Intel inbuilt Graphics, and NO extra graphic-card) so nothing to worry about graphic like nvidia etc.

Here is output of lspci:

I've installed xubuntu-desktop environment, unity-tweak-tool which are working fine for 3 month.

Recently I faced problem : Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears. I've tried the answers, but unable to solve my problem.

Probable reason for this is I've installed ubuntu-tweak recently. So, Also I removed it from tty, but unable to solve this problem.

I have Three ways to do anything:

  1. Using tty (Ctrl+AltF1)
  2. I've installed nautilus-open-terminal so I am able to start gnome-terminal by right-click on desktop and "Open Terminal Here".
  3. Using Xubuntu Session.

I have tried following things:

  • Enabling unity-plugin (https://askubuntu.com/a/76951/256099) But not solved.
  • dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ from gnome-terminal
  • Purged and re-installed unity, compiz and ubuntu-desktop
  • Removed cache by rm -rf ~/.compiz-1 ~/.config/compiz-1, sudo rm -fr ~/.compiz, sudo rm -fr ~/.cache/* ,sudo rm -fr .cache/*
  • Trying to replace/reset unity by following from gnome-terminal:
    1. unity --replace
    2. setsid unity
    3. ubuntu-tweak-tool --reset-unity

Output-1, Output-2

All shows common thing:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I've could try a re-install of whole OS. Or, is there any way to solve this problem?


Now what to do? (Isn't it possible to re-install whole unity desktop environment and use fresh D.E. without such problem?)

    What happens if you follow the answers to question: askubuntu.com/questions/449845/… Please don't follow the commands blindly. Give us a report what happend with each step. Keep the error- and ok messages. They will be useful for later analysis. – MadMike Oct 1 '14 at 7:30
  • You should be using a 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04 install, unless you upgrade to 2GB (or more) of RAM. – david6 Oct 1 '14 at 7:37
  • @Pandya As stated, try the things from the question I posted and tell us what the output is. Document it in your question. – MadMike Oct 1 '14 at 11:03
  • @MadMike I revised. – Pandya Oct 2 '14 at 6:18

    @Pandya, Segmentation fault hmm, could you try Getting a Backtrace see instructions here: wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingCompiz – user.dz Oct 6 '14 at 17:18

Try to:

Restore default settings

Execute the following commands in terminal, one at time.

gconftool --shutdown
sudo killall -r -I gconf
sudo killall -r -I dconf
rm -rf .compiz* .gconf* .config/dconf/ .config/compiz*

Be aware that above commands will remove any settings or configuration you've done already. Keyboard layouts (if any) will also be removed. Although above commands will not delete any files, they will restore Unity settings as were, when you installed Ubuntu for the first time.

Reboot your system for changes to take effect.

The same thing happened to me one time, so here's the answer I got that worked.

  • I've tried your answer but Can't solve my problem! still giving same error. However this is only about clearing cache or config and it's already answer in related questions! – Pandya Oct 8 '14 at 2:45
  • try installing gnome. It's not much different from Unity – Find Me In The Woods Oct 9 '14 at 23:24
