Unity worked fine when I was running 12.04 and after the upgrade to 12.10 Unity has not worked. I have tried installing Unity Tweak Tool and resetting unity but it didn't work.

I get this when i try to open Unity from terminal.

Please edit your question and add more info. The output of the following commands will (probably) help to determine the problem. cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log - /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p - lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga –  NikTh Feb 12 at 2:37
    
You should not have done that... 12.10 reaches end of life in April, at the same time that 14.04 comes out and you could have upgraded to that. –  psusi Feb 12 at 3:26
    
I only upgraded to 12.10 so that I could upgrade to 13.10. I'm currently upgrading to 13.10. I will try those commands if the problem still persists after the upgrae is complete. –  ubuntu_blenderer Feb 12 at 14:19
