Ubuntu – Launcher and panel disappeared after enabling Wobbly Windows and Desktop Cube effects

11.04ccsmcompizfullscreenpanel

I updated to Ubuntu 11.04, and simultaneously enabled the Wobbly Windows effect and the Desktop Cube effect in ccsm. After I restarted Ubuntu, the panel and launcher disappeared and the screen went into fullscreen mode. I am unable to open any files; I can only see a desktop screen.

  • Compiz is known not to work too well with cube in natty. Get to the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command

    unity --reset
    

    and then go back to wall setting in compiz.

    And if you will not be able to get to terminal then right click on desktop and create launcher for it - command line is

    gnome-terminal
