Uhm.. no you install the Guest Additions of Vmware to have 3D acceleration, has nothing to do with whatever GPU you have. –  Uri Herrera Feb 18 '12 at 3:08

nevermind, apparently vmware currently has no support for unity, for whatever reason. looks like virtualbox it is sigh –  nathan.copeman Feb 18 '12 at 5:13
    
Did you mean "discrete card" instead of "integrated card"? Related: askubuntu.com/q/82576/6969 –  Lekensteyn Feb 18 '12 at 11:59

According to the OP:

The problem is with VM Ware and not Ubuntu or the drivers.
