Try this: open a Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and run the following line! Then log out and in again!

unity --reset

Got this when doing that
root@jackie-Aspire-3100:/home/jackie# unity --reset
ERROR: the reset option is now deprecated

How come weather won't work Installed it un installed it and re installed it . . I miss the tempeture there

You have leapfrogged releases, you cannot upgraded from Maverick to Precise in one leap. It causes issues.

The DVD said there were 4 options andI clicked the one which said install 12.10 over 10.10 . . . . So Ilet it do it
Means I got to spend days copying stuff over to the backup drive . . then erase the drive in the laptop and reinstall 12.10 and then spend days putting all the stuff back plus re installing Virtual Box and install windblows and add some stuff back in there . . Then add all the programs I have in 12.10 installed now . . I had nothing to do for a week any way LMAO . . Good thing the library is fast likea 8 meg line . .
