Bug Description

Ever since my upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04, Unity has failed to work properly. I get no side bar with the list of applications. I get no top bar with the menu bars; the menu bars are now actually embedded in each window.

I got no window decorations until I upgraded some packages (some of them being compiz and unity) and installed xfce; either one of those granted me window decorations. If I run compiz --replace or unity, however, I lose window decorations or the ability to move and resize windows.

I get the same problem with both the nvidia-313 drivers or the nouveau + mesa drivers, so I'm filing this against unity.

Based on the behavior of this bug, this is a dup of bug #1166765. It appears a recent update has affected (some) Nvidia based machines.
