  • unity --reset
  • re-enabling unity plugin
  • reinstall of ccsm, unity, ...

What can I do to get unity working? Unity 2D, Gnome sessions works fine.

Output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p in a terminal? – RobinJ Oct 15 '11 at 11:03
The output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p is visible in the code section of my post. – Tony Dietrich Oct 15 '11 at 11:49
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. – Bruno Pereira Mar 9 '12 at 9:29

Looks like if you got here by installing xorg-edgers, then (from the bug):

sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers

You may need to reboot after this, but at least restart X:

sudo service lightdm restart
