If you haven't fixed -
log into Ubuntu, no matter that unity doesn't start
open a terminal any way you can, Ctrl+Alt+T should work, run this command (copy and paste into terminal if desired
unity --reset

Wait until the unity panel ect. reappear, when they do don't close the terminal
Instead just click on the power button in top right corner, log out and then in, you'll be fine

Can you help with this problem?
