After doing the xorg-edgers upgrade, I can't log into unity but I can access gnome 3. Any reasons why. The performance boost is amazing but I don't want to go back to the old drivers.

unity 2d works. compiz crashes and the following error is left in dmesg

[  530.302141] compiz[3247] general protection ip:7f038283bd30 sp:7fff81df2eb8 error:0 in libutouch-geis.so.1.2.0[7f0382831000+17000]

Looks like there are some problems in xorg-edgers, this is the one I hit:

To get back to something more stable:

sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers

Afterwards, restart X:

sudo service lightdm restart

Does Unity 2D work? If yes, install compiz-config:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

open it and look if the plugin unity is checked. If not, check it, restart your computer and unity 3d works.

    Well that didn't work. I'll just stick with Gnome3 and screw Unity. Thanks for the help anyways. – rockr101 Oct 17 '11 at 15:35
