Did it used to work and then stop working or is this the first time you've tried using unity-3D? If the latter is the case then can your graphics card run unity-3D? You might need to enable a restricted driver to use the 3D capabilities of your graphics card. –  adempewolff May 24 '12 at 12:37
I used unity 3D untill yesterday , It is much faster than unity . –  Tachyons May 24 '12 at 12:40
Okay. What (if any) updates did you install yesterday? New kernel, new video-card driver, new compiz? I'd say if you can isolate which package the regression is in and rollback to the old version you will both have a temporary work-around and an idea of where to go next. –  adempewolff May 24 '12 at 12:46

You sure update-manager didn't run and you just forgot? Check /var/log/dpkg.log and /var/log/apt/term.log just to be sure. I know I installed a new kernel yesterday, so... –  adempewolff May 24 '12 at 12:50
