Yesterday I switched back from Linux Mint to Ubuntu 14.04 and after installation I faced the following problem:
When I login with my user account Unity isn't loading. I can see no desktop elements – all I have are the desktop icons in some kind of GNOME-scheme.
But when I login as a guest on the guest account, Unity is working fine.
I read and tried alot yesterday as Ubuntu 14.04 seems to have plenty of issues with lightdm, compiz, … but nothing worked for me.
I have two asumptions:
- Because the guest account works, it seems to be an user specific problem.
- Because the guest account works, there seems so be no problem with graphic driver etc.
Are there user specific configurations? Maybe in xorg.conf? Any other explanations why the guest account works fine and my user account does not?
I have a Nvidia GEFORCE 520M running. I tried the nvidia-driver, but then no desktop appeared, neither in guest account nor in my user account. So I removed them.
I tried so many things yesterday, so that I absolutely lost track on more possible solutions. Anyone an idea?
