My computer used to run Unity 3d (in Ubuntu 12.04), but when I started it up today, it was in Unity 2d. I was messing with some Ubuntu One packages recently, but I don't think that I did anything with graphics at all.

I tried selecting Ubuntu (rather than Unity 2d) at the login screen, and that didn't change anything.

Please provide details on graphics chip/card. – david6 Jun 5 '13 at 7:58
In the intervening year, probably when I installed 12.10, the problem fixed itself. Not sure what the fix or problem was. – Sam King Jun 5 '13 at 23:02
