Decided to update my packages using update-manager, now unity launcher isn't working.

If force to launch Unity, this is what I am getting:

ilshod@small-camel:~$ unity &

If I run glxinfo, this is what I am getting:

dilshod@small-camel:~$ glxinfo 
name of display: :0.0

Any help on this?

I resolved the issue by re-installing Nvidia drivers. For some reason, every time I update core packages I have to reinstall the video drivers. This time for some reason, I was made to believe I didn't have to because Nvidia logo was showing up when launching X.

If I'm not mistaken, rebuilding Nvidia drivers was a must when upgrading Xorg and stuff. Now I don't know the current state of things, but I think they have improved. –  Braiam Jan 8 at 16:46
