I can only get unity to display properly at a lower (ugly-looking) resolution. Is there a way to fix this. I cannot go full screen. I can not find any bug reports that have similar problems.
I have blacklisted intel_ips because it had failed to i915 symbols.
This is common problem in linux and the solution on many websites and bug reports (which has worked up until now) is to blacklist intel_ips.
I am using a gateway laptop. 64 bit oneiric ocelot fully updated. installed from the daily build yesterday. this problem is not present when intel_ips is not blacklist and I resume normal boot from grub2 menu. but i cannot get a higher resolution than 1440x900 and the native resolution 1600x900.
I cannot post images because of the spam mechanism thing but basically there is a second dash menu that tries to show and they interlap and there is no fullscreen corner button at the bottom.
