This doesn’t sound like the bug linked in the OP’s question or the close candidate in the comments section: 2/15/18 compiz update broke unity. It sounds more like this common problem: Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears

This is especially true due to comments in deep within my proposed link stating the guest session works perfectly just not the normal user. The OP here has same scenario.

Try the simple solution there by opening a terminal and typing:

rm -rf ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/*
sudo reboot

Some users say it works right away while someone else says the reboot is necessary.
