Unity doesn't load and no menubar?

update : I've tried solution from Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears.

It says I have to enable unity plugin with ccsm. It says "Loading icons".But I am able to enable the plugin and go back to TTY and the ccsm stuck on "Loading icons ...". I go back to my desktop and close the ccsm, "Loading icons..." disappear, but after I reboot, nothing happened. still no menubar and unity.

I also tried https://askubuntu.com/a/76951/437417 but stuck on

DISPLAY=:0 ccsm

it diplays nothing after i tried Ctrl+Fn+Alt+F7

I also tried dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ from https://askubuntu.com/a/290376/437417 , but it says "cannot autolaunch D-bus without X11 $DISPLAY".

I tried Ctrl+Fn+Alt+F1 sudo service lightdm restart

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install unity

from https://askubuntu.com/a/476623/437417, nothing happened.

now, what should I do? Please help me ;_;

  • Did you install any new software or update/upgrade anything just before this problem appeared? I assume performance is Ok booting into the login screen (since you were able to get to the guest account)? Do you use Wi-Fi or eathernet? – PJ Singh Feb 27 '16 at 4:06

  • Last thing I install was something with code '$ sudo apt-get install openssh-server'. I use it to install app for presentation remote from android. I use wifi. I just find out that I can actually right-click my desktop, so I guess my computer isn't slow at all. – Gammaries Feb 27 '16 at 8:04

You could trie this:

dconf reset -f /org/compiz
unity --reset-icons &disown

and it might work fine this way.

  • Have you tried this: sudo nano /etc/X11/Xsession/custom.default and enter this [Default session] NAME=ubuntu EXEC=/etc/X11/x11/Xsession – Michael Feb 27 '16 at 15:48
