I've been using Linux off & on for years. More recently, I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my desktop PC. It worked fine for a few weeks, then it appears the Unity desktop failed. I can only access the system through the terminal.
I tried various tips & tricks but I haven't been able to fix it. I want to reinstall 14.04 but use the Gnome Classic Desktop instead of Unity.
My question: Will Unity still be running even after I install & switch to Gnome? I want to avoid any more problems with Unity if I can. Thank you.
