I switched recently to the Gnome desktop environment. I was running Xubuntu, but got fed up with the bugs so decided to install Gnome-Shell.
All was fine until I removed Xubunt and Xfce in an attempt to resolve a SUSPEND issue.
Now the session list button (the Gear ICON) and top row icons are no longer showing. If I click on the place where they are meant to be the menus show.
Missing gear icon: IMAGE
It seems to have lost its icon theme. I have installed GDM3SETUP which allows me to alter theming of the GDM, however the icons do not register.
Is there a way to reset the GDM? I have tried purging and manually removing all GDM files I could find, then reinstalling, but the same issue.... I suspect that a setting somewhere is being remembered and not being cleared.
Any ideas where the conf file is for the GDM?
Gnome 3.10 (Ubuntu 14.04)
