Toshiba Tecra M11
Ubuntu 12.04, Unity

The nouveau open-source nvidia drivers don't work properly. The nvidia drivers got broken by Unity. But, it seems other desktops (xfce) for 12.04 also won't work right for this nvidia graphics machine. This is a machine that worked like a champ for 10.04. [In 10.04 I had a wifi prob, but that turned out to be the network manager. Uninstalled that, installed wicd, and all was good.]

Outside of graphics issues, what worked in 10.04 seems to work in 12.04. But problem vid is enough to cancel my subscription, know what I mean? I can get 2-D to work, but still with multi-monitor setup issues. Too much work!
