I'm new to Ubuntu so go easy on me. I've heard great feedback and support from these forums so I'm crossing my fingers.
I booted ubuntu 16.04 on my new custom build pc, I went through all the installation steps and rebooted my system.
However, when i get to the log in screen, i enter my password and the desktop then flashes quickly, briefly seeing the Ubuntu logo and its version and then parts of the desktop template fade away and I am just left with the desktop wallpaper and the mouse, nothing else, no other options.
I can open terminal with ctrl + alt + 1 and I have tried various commands to fix the issue after reading the threads here, especially this one Ubuntu 16.04 Unity No desktop just background wallpaper I get the line 'compizconfig-settings-manager' has no installation candidate so that's no good
I feel like the video drivers may be an issue and i need to update them but the command line says everything is updated.
Can anyone help me with this I am very stuck and need a working computer ASAP. Much thanks to anyone. Here is my pc build: MSI GTX 970 Intel I5 6600k Asus z170 Deluxe MB Samsung 950 PRO SSD
