Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

So I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and I cannot get Unity 2d to work with my system. This is particularly frustrating as it works just fine in all the VMs I've tested it on. I actually really like Unity and I want to get to know it (in part) before Ubuntu 11.04.

I checked Synaptic and it looks like everything's there. The only thing not installed are dev libs and so on. Should I install those as well?

Obviously the difference between my system and a VM is that the VM is running off a basically brand new OS. I only use VMs to test new stuff out and remake them often, so my only guess is that I have something installed on my system that is preventing Unity from running.

Any thoughts?

This should probably be a bug report as unity-2d isn't finished. However it publishes builds every day so maybe during one of the upgrades it'll start working for you. –  Jorge Castro Feb 19 '11 at 22:41
