I followed instructions to install nvidia drivers found here: Nvidia driver doesn't work in 12.10 But it doesn't work for me. Same problem like in the question above: no dash and windows don't have borders.
I tried opening
nvidia-xsetting, which asked me to run
nvidia-xconfig. Running that did nothing but generate a broken
xorg.conf which I had to remove because of really low resolution. I thought this is "unity not loading problem" but instead this seems to be "driver not loading problem" because
nvidia-xsetting said that I don't use nvidia drivers (which btw I find really weird because
lsmod says nvidia kernel module is indeed loaded), and games didn't load either.
I can "fix" this by doing
modprobe nouveau, but with nouveau 3D games like 0 A.D. are broken.
Any ideas? I'm out of them.
