We you log onto Ubuntu and the resolution mysteriously changes or all your desktop icons are gone, chances are good you logged into a โ€œGuest Sessionโ€ the simple solution is to log off and log back on using your โ€œnormalโ€ account.

In some cases you may need to reboot if your software behaves abnormally like conky did in this AU Question: (Accidentally logged into Guest account, then normal account & conky broken) where I logged out of โ€œGuest Sessionโ€ and immediately logged into โ€œnormalโ€ account without rebooting.
