    Enable 3D Mode Unity 12.04

    Ok, guys. I thought I had this figured out, but I can't find the xorg.conf file to enable compositing on my new netbook installation. I just did this very same thing on my desktop and there were no hiccups or flaws. All I had to do was go in and edit the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I have an NVIDIA graphics card and have installed the latest driver. Suggestions?

    Hi!, ditchdoc7893,

    From a Terminal run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo update-grub
    And watch for any errors.

    Have you run Nvidia Xserver settings? or:
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-settings
    ?? You may need to install the later, depending on how you installed the "latest"driver version.

    BTW, What version is it?. nvidia-current or downloaded .run file.?

    Chao!, bogan.

    I ran both the sudo apt-get and sudo update grub. No error messages were generated. When I run the command sudo nvidia-settings, it returns the following error statement:

    You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Pease edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root), and restart the X server. Any ideas?

    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    and reboot the pc.

    and give the result of these commands
    Code:

    I may have screwed up. I went back and double checked the specs of this netbook. Seems that it may have Intel GMA 950 graphics. I'm far from familiar with this. It is an Asus Eee PC 1005 HAB. This has been my utility book that worked fine with 10.10 without any modifications to anything. Any ideas?

    Hi ,
    please give the result of this command
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga
    so we can see for sure what is your graphics card and what driver you use.
    Then we can guide you .

    Thanks

    Hi!, Peter K Nichol,

    Have you run:
    Code:
    unity # or:
    unity --reset # or try:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
    If so, with what results? [ Re-boot after each]

    Please Post:
    Code:
     uname -r
    cat /etc/lsb-release 
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
    ps ax | grep unity

    Thanks for the reply. It will be a couple of days until I get back to the machine but I will let you know how I get on.
