Ubuntu: Black unity launcher and icons


on Ubuntu 16.04 all icons and launcher are black. tried changing the theme/icons still same problem.


I did nothing new, it happened right after I booted up like I normally do.


Not an answer exactly but a workaround.

  1. Install Unity Tweak Tool (sudo apt install unity-tweak-tool)
  2. Launcher tab | Appearance section
  3. Set Colour to Custom


I just had this problem after an upgrade. It was easily fixed by just changing my desktop wallpaper image, which refreshed the launcher icons.


You can reset unity with this

dconf reset -f /org/compiz/    setsid unity  

if not working, reset the options of unity in ~/.config/compiz-1/
