Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
I just upgraded from ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04. When I log in into Unity 3D and Gnome 3 I only get a wallpaper for few seconds and then the screen goes blank with mouse pointer showing. I can easily log in to Unity 2D and Gnome Classic (no effects).
I have Nvidia GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a/integrated/SSE2/3DNOW! Graphic card. I checked my card compatibility using
/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p and came out with following result:
jeevan@jeevan-System-Product-Name:~$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a/integrated/SSE2/3DNOW! OpenGL version string: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 295.40 Not software rendered: yes Not blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes GL vertex program: yes GL fragment program: yes GL vertex buffer object: yes GL framebuffer object: yes GL version is 1.4+: yes Unity 3D supported: yes
After lot of reading and going through several post and also trying different solutions to it I am still not able to get Unity 3D working. I think the problem is with the Nvidia Graphic Driver 295.40 which is crashing Compiz. I tried to roll back to Nvidia 295.33 but it doesn't allow me to do so as it keeps asking to install from root. I cannot find anyway to login as root. I badly need help. I somehow want to get UNITY 3D running.
Any advice would be appreciated.
