[Bug 1166765] Re: unity showing only blank desktop, no dash nor decorations


Dear All,
I'm new to ubuntu.
I've been trying to install nvidia drivers and cuda to use gpu for machine learning.
I tried different versions, once lost the desktop (had a blank screen) and restored it.

Now, icons went missing...
I've been trying whatever but nothing works....

I've got an asus n550j with two graphic cards.
My gpu is a geforce 750m
ubuntu 14.04 

solution from comment 34 didn't work (by the way in extensions i have
only libglx.so)

$ gsettings get org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ active-plugins

['core', 'composite', 'opengl',  'compiztoolbox', 'decor', 'vpswitch',
'snap', 'mousepoll', 'resize', 'place', 'move', 'wall', 'grid', 'regex',
'imgpng', 'workarounds', 'session', 'gnomecompat', 'animation', 'fade',
'unitymtgrabhandles', 'scale', 'expo', 'ezoom', 'unityshell']

$ cat .xsession-errors

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
Script per ibus iniziato in run_im.
Script per auto iniziato in run_im.
Script per default iniziato in run_im.
init: Processo main (2039) del job indicator-secret-agent terminato (kill) dal segnale KILL

What else can I do?
Other workarounds? Update to 14.10?
Thank you for your help!
