I have managed to get 3D acceleration to work when running Ubuntu 11,10 in virtualbox, however, when Ubuntu loads the unity display, any application I launch seems to be hidden.
The open apps are running, but not being displayed.
All works fine when in 2D, so it is something to do with the 3D acceleration.
Wondered if anyone had the same issue...
- Host: OS x Lion
- Guest: Ubuntu 11.10
When I resize the virtualbox window, the applications flashes on to the screen, but then disappears again.
When I right click, I can create a document, the icon is shown on the desktop, but when I open it, again it is there but does not display.

Unity 3D displays ok, but when any program is opened it is not displayed, however is running, as though it is behind the desktop. If i resize the virtualbox window the running program flashes on the screen and then disappears again
If I right click on the desktop after opening a program, eg Nautilus, the nautilus right click menu appears. So the program is there, and operational, but is not being displayed.
Has anyone got Unity working in Virtualbox or VMWare Fusion, if so what versions of Virtual** software?
