On Ubuntu 2010.10 I installed VMware. Then I installed the 2011.04beta1 in VMware. Evrything worked fine, but after updating packages and rebooting I got the following popup:
It seems that you do not have the hardware required to run Unity. Please choose Ubuntu Classic at the login screen and you will be using the traditional environment.
It opens a session anyway. I have never tried Unity but I am pretty sure it opened a plain old Gnome session.
How can I trick out VMware to support Unity?
