I only really know a bit of nVidia.
With your AMD, you need to know if you have legacy version which is not supported by the new drivers or a newer board that is supported.
Did you install the headers. That is critical to get anything to work with 12.10.
Not sure now which is for current or which is for legacy with AMD/ATI.

I have no launcher, and no window decorations after last nights update on my laptop.
I can run terminals via ALT-CNTRL-F1 etc, but it seems the update has broken unity.
Had that issue after update yesterday. Have had 12.10 running without problems for several weeks.
Obviously, some new updates have come along since yesterday evening, for after a new update everything works.
From a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T), run update-manager.

In my case, the Unity problem persisted even after changing to the correct driver. I noticed that using a guest account, everything was fine, so it a user setting was broken.solved the issue (though some compiz settings were resetted also)Code:dconf reset -f /org/compiz
