some weeks ago, I tried to install nvidia drivers from their web-page. (lesson learned, it's a big mistake) Then I have ended up totally broken system. (In terms of graphics)
Currently my unity has problem as exactly as described here; Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
However none of the solutions there didn't help me.
For weeks, I have been trying many things mentioned including both here or ubuntu forums, but still no luck. I'm currently running gnome-shell on the same system, and it is pretty working, but I couldn't get my unity back.
I have tried complete reinstall of nvidia drivers and nouveau drivers. as well as complete reinstall of unity, compiz etc.
I don't know how to trace the problem, but I guess it is a driver issue since lspci can't detect my kernel module.

I have tried to enable nvidia drivers using text-jockey. it didn't help either. here is the output of text-jockey -l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1400473/
Also, unity support utility shows this output;
22:21 laptop ~ $ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p Error: GLX is not available on the system
When I ran unity --replace I get bunch of errors, (unity --reset says the command is deprecated) the output is here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1400481/
I'm running ubuntu 12.10, my graphic card is nvidia geforce 630m.
These are the logs all I can collect. I need a way to re-install graphic drivers (nouveau or proprietary, doesn't matter at this point) to get my unity back.
Any help, or ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advence.
