Ubuntu – Ubuntu 17.10 secondary display issue, missing menubar, launcher and bar on top of the screen displays date time and network status missing


Installed Ubuntu 17.10 today, menubar, launcher and the bar which indicates time/date/network connection status are missing.

I am using the secondary display and connecting the laptop to the secondary. Even without the secondary display, the top bar on the screen and launcher are missing. When secondary is enabled and laptop display is disabled,there is no menu bar, launcher and bar at the screen top are also missing.

In Ubuntu 17.04 if we disable built-in-display and enable secondary display it works fine. How can I fix it in Ubuntu 17.10?
