comment Black screen after login?
/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p returned: ... Not blacklisted: no ... Unity 3D support: no Next I ran: lspci | grep VGA returned: GA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV36 [GeForce FX 5700LE] Even installing NVIDIA drivers resulted in black screen after logging in. Turns out unity does not work with my graphics card. My solution was not to run unity and run gnome. sudo apt-get gnome-session-flashback and reboot. At the login screen click the icon to the upper right of name and select GNOME Flashback (Metacity).
