Think the title is fairly clear (system specs below)

I cannot get Unity (2d works) nor Gnome 3 to load properly since an update run last Friday

thus far I've tried

  • installing propietary drivers manually download from web-site reboot to system recovery console and install
    • Latest Long Lived Branch version: 295.59
    • Latest Short Lived Branch version: 302.17
  • installing nvidia-current
    • the ubuntu default version at 295.40
    • the x-swat version (currently running) at version 3.02.XX (forget extension -- currently unable to switch windows to check)

including variations of tinkering with xorg.conf and such

current logs don't show any errors (will paste in once I get on a system that can switch windows to copy and paste over network) checking - dmesg - kern.log - Xorg.0.log

glxgears shows running 75 FPS under gnome 3 in a window so the OpenGL parts seem to be working, and nvidia-settings shows everything working fine, but I get a dependency error when I try to run gnome directly (again I'll paste in reference)

any ideas? I'm plum out of gas to keep tackling this and found myself considering migrating this workstation to Windows after 4+ years of freedom...

Video: Nvidia GT 520 CPU: AMD Phenom II (dual core) 3.2GHz RAM: 12GB DDR3

additional note 2 monitors are working properly, and I can boot into Unity 2D

booting into Gnome 3 loads a desktop where hotkeys work and all startup programs load but no gnome-shell which errors out when trying to run via console

Unity simply loads to the desktop where it is then non-responsive for a couple minutes and times out back to lightdm

(more log pastes shortly)
