I have installed Ubuntu 14.04. It worked for approx. 2 days. But today when I turned it on launcher & Menu bar was absent & ctrl+alt+t was also not working. I tried "sudo service lightdm restart" it didn't worked. Please help me.. and launcher is present in guest session but not in Admin login..
If above command doesnot work try this(it saved me a week ago): `Ctrl+Alt+F1´
sudo service lightdm stop
sudo service lightdm start

I have tried many different things, but below solution worked for me:
- Go to your folder: usr/bin and click "gnome-terminal".
- When terminal opens write "ccsm"
- This will open unity screen.
- Select "unity plugin" and then tick "enable unity plugin" option.
- That will bring back your dashboard.
I tried this, but nothing happens, and after I close ccsm and reopen it, none of the settings seemed to stay there. Apr 11, 2018 at 2:54
Yeah, re-login and set the mode to 'unity' is the key step.– SiweiSep 19, 2019 at 9:50
Enter the following commands:-
login there by user name and password, type
sudo service lightdm restart
If lightdm fails to get back at normal :-
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install unity
