Last night installed 14.04:i386 on my netbook, from a live usb.

Using the live usb, Unity works fine. After installed the system, there was no launcher and no dash.

After spending hours of trying lots of things and reading a lot of pages, i've found this difference between the usb system and the installation on the netbook:

OpenGL vendor string:   VMware, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits)
OpenGL version string:  2.1 Mesa 10.1.0

Not software rendered:    no
Not blacklisted:          yes
GLX fbconfig:             yes
GLX texture from pixmap:  yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program:        yes
GL fragment program:      yes
GL vertex buffer object:  yes
GL framebuffer object:    yes
GL version is 1.4+:       yes

Unity 3D supported:       no

That's from the one installed. The usb's says this:

OpenGL vendor string:   Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GME x86/MMX/SSE2
OpenGL version string:  1.4 Mesa 10.1.0

Not software rendered:    yes
Not blacklisted:          yes
GLX fbconfig:             yes
GLX texture from pixmap:  yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program:        yes
GL fragment program:      yes
GL vertex buffer object:  yes
GL framebuffer object:    yes
GL version is 1.4+:       yes

Unity 3D supported:       yes

That's the output of "/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p".

So, i got Gallium after 14.04 installed, and it doesn't seems to work ok with my hardware.

How can i get the same driver i got on the live usb?

UPDATE:

I've installed the default intel drivers, and the unity_support_test output is the same in both the USB Live system, and the one installed. However, i still have no launcher and no dash.

Here's a screenshot.

That's how my netbooks desktop looks

Is it right that the first one is the bad driver and the second the good one? Please try executing sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel in that case and tell me if it worked or not. –  Louis Matthijssen May 2 at 22:26
    
Thanks Louis. I did that, and also other commands stated here: ubuntuask.com/q/… Now i got Intel drivers, the tests give all green light, but still have no launcher and no dash. I'll update the question. –  Daniel Cantarin May 2 at 22:39
