Ubuntu Natty - No GUI at start up

Asked by Ramin Berwers

Thank you for this opportunity to ask you this question.

I installed Ubuntu Natty. From the repository I installed qbittorrent. When I started qbittorrent the GUI came up.
After closing it is impossible to get it back. Also after a restart GUI does not appear anymore.
Running 'ps aux | grep torrent' shows me qbittorrent is running.

I added the following ppa:
- http://ppa.launchpad.net/hydr0g3n/ppa/ubuntu

This did not help me. Also the unstable ppa did not gave me the solution.

Thank you in advance.

My guess is that you're affected this bug in Natty Unity:

For some reason, the qBittorrent tray icon is not displayed as a default and you cannot bring the UI back once it is minimized... You can follow this tutorial to bring the icon back:

Or even better, use a stable Window manager instead of Unity. I know that's what I did when Natty came out.
