Ubuntu: Black unity launcher and icons



Question:

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

Screenshot

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


Solution:1

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


Solution:2

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


Solution:3

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/
