[Bug 995913] [NEW] White desktop, no launcher icons


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from CD I experience the
behavior described in bug #902670:

The main desktop area is dead white. No display of anything except the
pointer cursor.

The launcher bar shows in some kind of purple, but without icons.
Hovering the mouse over the launcher bar flashes 'tooltip' descriptions
of what should be there.  These extend over the white desktop.

The top 'tray' bar shows with its proper icons.

Pressing Alt-F2, for example, leads to a window over the white desktop

Immediately after logging in, I can see the correct background, but then
it's immediately covered with the white block.
