I am using using ubuntu 11.10. Everything was working perfectly this morning. At a moment "Ubuntu software center" application was unable to get started. So I restarted by system and when I logged in it started under GNOME. Again when I try to start in ubuntu session then it was not showing in menu list but Ubuntu 2D is coming. I don't come to know why this is happening.

please let me know any fix for this issue.

vivek@vivek-desktop:~/Desktop$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes

vivek@vivek-desktop:~/Desktop$ glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

so what did you usually use? unity 3D? Did you install any updates? If so, you might have lost OpenGL support, which is required for Unity 3D. You can check that with glxinfo and try it with glxgears. If this doesnt work you should check your graphics driver information. –  Michael K Nov 24 '11 at 6:34
I was using unity 3D, before this error. –  dearvivekkumar Nov 24 '11 at 6:40
Then please type in a terminal: glxinfo | grep rendering - if there is a no then report this here. Else check whether glxgears opens a window with rotating 3D gears and report your results here :-) –  Michael K Nov 24 '11 at 6:57
Okay I'm away now. Thanks for your time! –  dearvivekkumar Nov 24 '11 at 7:00
