That would make sense but no, it should be just "DISPLAY=:0". It's possible to run more than one X-server at the same time, in which case each would have a different DISPLAY number for each server. But when you're running just one, as you do in an ordinary desktop, it's just display number 0, so DISPLAY=:0.

comment What should I do when Ubuntu freezes?
If your video driver is using kernel modesetting (KMS), it's unlikely this will be sufficient to fix lockups, you have to use sysrq or power cycle. (Go ahead and try C-A-B, it obviously can't hurt; it does work when an app (like compiz/unity) is stuck, rather than X itself, however other answers on this page would be better in this case). But when it doesn't work, now you know why. :-)

comment How can I get unity3d working with my gtx570?
Also, your /var/log/Xorg.0.log might shed some light on the situation. It sounds like your GLX module is loaded properly but it's possibly the log will show a revealing error message.

Ok, well I think /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p failing is likely why unity isn't starting up. A backtrace might give some clues (i.e. gdb /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test ; run -p ; bt full)
