I 'm having a problem with Ubuntu 16.04, on Asus UX303LA. I currently use the Arc theme but sometimes, when I boot up, the theme does not load properly and the environment looks like the Ambience theme (with a wrong font...).

This is how it looks like:


and this is how it should look


I can't find any kind of "regularity": sometimes it happens, sometimes not. Most of the times (let say, 4 out of 5) it works properly. To solve the problem it's enough to log out, but it's annoying...

Maybe it's related, maybe not, but (again) sometimes (say 1 out of 10), when I shut down, it takes 60-90 secs to have the system turned off, while usually a few seconds are enough (I replaced the HD with a SSD).

I know that it seems confusing, but at the moment I can't be more specific :(

  • it fails to load on the first login everytime now for me. same issue here askubuntu.com/questions/773536/… – ryanpattison Jun 14 '16 at 14:50
  • running setsid unity && killall nautilus in the terminal is the workaround I use for now. – ryanpattison Jun 14 '16 at 15:29
  • Thanks! I tried it and it's better than log-out and log-in... – mor0 Jun 18 '16 at 13:43
  • Similar symptoms here, arc, and other themes fail once in a while. Regarding that long shut down delay, I can see the item causing the slowdown (I disabled Plymouth to see it.) I can not remember right now what it is, but it runs a timer to 1min 30sec exactly before shutting down. – SE - stop firing the good guys Oct 4 '16 at 11:01
