Unity 14.04 is failing to load after an upgrade from 12.04. I think it is because it was an incomplete upgrade and there was some errors. I finally got it to recognize me and let me login into Unity with my user name and password but then it crashes. When I went into the terminal I searched for errors but have no clue what the below code describes:

X Error of failed request: Bad Request (invalid request code or no such operation)
major opcode of failed request: 155 (glx)

  • "did ~/.xsession-errors a second time" in what context? what is your actual question? – steeldriver Nov 22 '14 at 13:19
  • Unity wasn't Loading after an upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04. I finally got it to login, but it now crashes and says system error, report problem? When I go into the terminal and type xsession-errors I was given the above results – Patrick Nov 22 '14 at 16:29

As you have a serious problem, and you're a new user and you're probably panicking right now, I'm cutting you some slack to tell you to:

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1
  2. Log in on the console (the big black screen you just arrived to)
  3. Point you to: How to reinstall Unity
  • Thank you Fabby, I will try this. I'm definitely not panicking, just don't know where to go. Thanks! sorry I can't upvote you! when I can I'll be sure to pass it on! – Patrick Nov 22 '14 at 19:47

    I require 15 reputation points... and Just so you know, it didn't work, still won't let me login, followed the directions from the page. I think it's time to uninstall, reinstall – Patrick Nov 22 '14 at 20:19
  • Once you've got the 15 reputation, come back and upvote! ;) – Fabby Nov 22 '14 at 20:40

    I do not think he'll come back again. Perhaps he now uses Windows – A.B. Aug 19 '15 at 12:43
