    Just for my information, does anyone know how to report a bug directly to the developers?

    I suspect all problems with unity are because of the nvidia graphics cards or the drivers installed.

    If you are running the Nvidia-current 295.40 it may need to be rolled back to 295.33 or earlier. I have heard that 280 doesn't work and 173 is not compatible with Xserver 1.11

    Well I don't think you can as the xserver 1.11 is not compatible with that driver.

    You could install the driver by downloading it from nvidia. However that may make things worse. This would be ill advised.

    To install a earlier driver this is one way.
    Do this through tty (ctrl+alt+f2)
    Code:
     
     
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
     
    cd path/to/nvidia_driver 
     
    sudo service lightdm stop 
     
    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-YOURDRIVER.run

    Okay... so would I put 173 where you put in bold "YOURDRIVER"? Also, what is the likelihood that Ubuntu will be releasing a fix for this issue? I'd rather not do something that would screw up my computer if Ubuntu may be releasing a fix...

    I don't know if they are going to fix it. If they do it may be awhile or not at all. This has been known since at least January. It may be up to nvidia to fix it. Since the 295.40 driver is borked. Who knows how much longer nvidia will take. I am rolling off the 295.33 driver.

    If you do decide to do it that way. Just replace NVIDA-Linux-Yourdriver.run with the name Nvidia gives it. Also once you change to the directory that the driver is d/l'd to you can type out part of the name and hit TAB it will autofill.

    This why I have three versions of Ubuntu in separate partitions. I alway suspect the newest version to need some work to get going. Like forcing things to work.

    Sorry, I'm still a bit of a noob here... what is the name that Nvidia gives it?
    And this statement:
    "Also once you change to the directory that the driver is d/l'd to you can type out part of the name and hit TAB it will autofill."
    didn't make sense to me...
    sorry, as I said, I'm still a bit new to all this; only been running Ubuntu for about a month.

    Go here to download your driver. Pick either 32 or 64 bit linux. What ever version you are using.

    This will all have to be done from the command line interface through tty (ctrl+alt+f2) press those three keys at login. To get out press alt+f7 this will bring you back to the GUI. I know you said you had problems with unity 2d. Try logging in to 2d then go to TTY log in again and try this. Just to see if that works.
    Code:
    unity --reset
    cd is a command for changing directories. This might be a good time to google BASH manual or commands. There is the wget command also for downloading files from CLI.
