Bug Description

[ Impact ]

The manpage for the "unity" command reflects the actual available options.

[ Test Case ]

Run "man unity". It should not say "--reset" is a valid command-line switch (option).

[ Regression Potential ]

This is a change to the man page. I suppose it might be a regression if the man page still does not match the option available in the 'unity' command. Not terribly serious.

Hello. I had the same problem and I fixed it using Ubuntu Tweak/Tweaks/Desktop/Desktop Icons. Unticked it (Show Desktop Icons), ticked it again and the icons appeared again

Ignore my previous post. Icons are back but update manager does not work and it gives me this message

"Can't guess meta-package

Your system does not contain a ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop or edubuntu-desktop package and it was not possible to detect which version of Ubuntu you are running.
 Please install one of the packages above first using synaptic or apt-get before proceeding."

Having this same problem on Ubuntu 14.04 running inside VirtualBox. Somehow the Unity bars are not shown. I tried compiz --replace and i get "compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'composite' not loaded."
Then I tried "$ sudo unity --reset
ERROR: the reset option is now deprecated"

  * When Show Desktop is active, it will set the tooltip icon as

    bool is updated in PluginAdapter, the Show Desktop icon will update
    its tooltip if needed. (LP: #1237132)

    LauncherIcon (LP: #1353070)
  * LauncherIcon: make the Icon count width depending on the text value
    width (LP: #796527)
  * Lockscreen: scale the UI elements based on current monitor scaling

  * SwitcherView: set progress on icon render args (LP: #1361679)
