Last update caused me to lose features & functions

Asked by Dean von Germeten

Hi Ubuntu community.

My last update caused me to lose docky apps on the left border, everything is gone! Also features of firefox browser are gone too. I can't move windows, expand or reduce their size, close, or open new ones. All I have are basic desktop apps & folders, I can't find or access apps I'd installed. I don't know how to set my system back before the last update (automatic back-up is "OFF.") I didn't run the janitor this time so I didn't erase the older files but the update probably did over-write them. I have to shut down and restart just to clear windows I can't otherwise close

I found the trouble, apparently either in updating or my impatience during shut-downs, DBus was lost. I reinstalled it, full functionality restored. Problem solved.
