    I'm with the last guy. I have a Geforce GT 520M and get the exact same error message as he does. I also haven't found any thread close to solving this problem yet.

    Hello.

    I have a new install of 12.04 but, apart from one a few hours, I only have Unity 2d. Nvidia current and nvidia settings have been purged and I have the output below.
    Any suggestions about where I should go next would be gratefully received.

    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
    Chao!, bogan.

    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.

    Rather inconclusive results. A few warnings including "this shouldn't happen" and it is still in 2d.

    Re: Enable 3D Mode Unity 12.04

    Hi!, Peter K Nicol,

    Your Post shows 'unity-2d-shell' running, which is the 2d launcher, and in 12.04 that is not a default, and the unity-3d programs all look normal.

    Furthermore the 'unity_support_test' shows 3d supported, but the OpenGL using Gallium/mesa, which implies Nouveau.

    Have you got 'nomodeset' in as a boot option?, that could force 'mesa' and degrade graphics.

    You also Posted that the nvidia drivers had been purged - they should not have been there in the first place.

    So I am thoroughly confused. Did you check that any Nouveau blacklist entry, made for the nvidia driver install, has been removed from /etc/module.d??

    I do not know a lot about ATI Radeon video cards & GPU's, but i am surprised to see it using thje 'radeon' kernel module, and not 'fgrlx'.

    Googling: "ATI [1002:9644]" & "1043:84c8. AMD Radeon HD 6410D" did not produce anything of obvious significance to me; perhaps it might help you.

    Hopefully, someone more knowledgeable in AMd/ATI/Radeon matters will come forward to help.

    Chao!, bogan.

    Re: Enable 3D Mode Unity 12.04

    Hi!, Peter K Nicol,

    Second thoughts:

    Where did you get the " this should not happen" messages? and what was 'this' ??

    Have you checked if there are other drivers available in 'Additional drivers' ??

    Chao!, bogan.

    Thanks for the help. Again it might be a few days until I can get anything done.
    The messages were part of the output from
    unity # or:
    and
    unity --reset # or try:
    which, incedentally, both hung.
    I will report back next week.

    Re: Enable 3D Mode Unity 12.04

    Is the answer in here somewhere or is it part of the same problem?
