I've downloaded and installed Ubuntu 16.04 throught Parallels 11 on my MacBook Pro.
The installation went fine and after reboot I could login and use the graphical interface without problems.
Anyway, the resolution was low and the display aspect ratio wrong, so I installed Parallels Tools as usual to fix these minor issues and activate some of parallels features.
After I installed parallels tools I rebooted my virtual machine and all seemed to be fine (login and unity worked flawless), but after I restarted again unity keeps crashing every time I do the login.
I'm aware this problem (or similar) has already been solved somehow here:
- Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
- Parallels (Tools) 9 & 14.04
- Unity is broken after Parallels Tools installation in Ubuntu 14.04
but none of these methods worked in my case.
- Following the accepted solution in
1did not work since when I launch
ccsmfrom command line it doesn't appear inside graphical interface.
- Reading the only answer in
2I realised that I had no
xorg.confat all (seems the default behaviour now a days), so I tried
sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stopand then
X -configureand then I reinstalled Parallels Tools with no luck! (NOTE: I had to launch these commands on a clean install since lightdm did not stop properly after I installed Parallels Tools for the first time).
- Using suggested solution in
3(even after generating
xorg.confas described above) I get an error using
gsettings reset org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ active-pluginssaying that DBUS could not connect.
