In Ubuntu 14.04, after arriving at the lightdm login screen and entering my password, the screen briefly disappears, but then comes back to the login screen. When going to terminal with
ALT-CTR-F1 and doing
sudo startx I get into X but no top and side bar.
sudo startx unity I see the side bar but no status bar. And the screen looks weird and does not work well.
I did not change anything to my configuration, I guess it has been some automatic update.
Any suggestion as to how to solve this? I really do not want to reinstall.
