I am trying to run Ubuntu 11.10 as a guest on Windows 7. When I enter into unity mode, the menu for the guest os, next to the Windows start menu is empty. I have searched around the web for a fix for this, but there doesn't seem to be anything that works.
I have tried restarting the guest os several times, I am running VMware player as an admin, but the guest start menu in unity mode is still empty.
I have tried clearing the VM cache.
I have installed all the Ubuntu updates and the VMware tools.
Has anyone had this problem?
