Installed NVidia 610 now, no menu on left

July 9Hits:1

I'd like to use MythTV so I purchased an NVidia 610 and installed in my Ubuntu Server tower. First boot, no issues, so I update Linux while installing NVidia drivers from "Additional Drivers".

After restart, the resolution was reduced. Once I log in and startx I see nothing but the blank desktop (resolution is correct). No menu on left side. I can right click or use power button to shut down. What happened???

Answers

While trying your suggestions I viewed this page: Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears

That solved the issue. I started to step backwards, because the launcher DID show on first boot with the new card installed. It was after I installed the NVidia drivers that I lost my launcher/title bar.

I removed the discrete card and was able to check "ubuntu unity plugin". Rebooted with card re-installed and the plugin must have fixed it.
