    nvidia driver update built today in 12.04 x-swat/x-updates ppa breaks unity

    Just a heads up. The new driver built about six hours ago worked ok with gnome classic but caused a problem with unity - no side bar popping up on mouse to left. Ran ppa-purge in the meantime to revert.

    After a bit of experimenting it appears that it is just the autohide behaviour that doesn't work. ie if autohide is set then the reveal doesn't work with this version of the driver (nvidia 304.51)

    You can use the "Super" key to get by for now and wait/hope for the update/fix come out soon enough.
    This is what I do right now because everything else seems to work normally for me.

    Thanks for the heads up, should have come here first. I to experienced this and reset unity (then, arg, a bunch of compiz stuff) before discovering the super solution.
