    Yeah, I had been using Gnome 3 just prior to this 12.10 disaster. While I quite like Gnome 3, I didn't exactly feel like there's a huge difference between Gnome 3 and Unity. I wish more of linux community effort could be spent toward a lesser number of more awesome options, rather than being divided into all these big projects that look not so different from each other.

    # only reason to purge is there are several versions, if you know you have different nVidia use that:
    #To see available versions:
    apt-cache search nvidia-sett*
    # I used nvidia-current-updates & nvidia-settings-updates, example below is just nvidia-current, use version you prefer
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-current
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    sudo reboot

    May want nvidia-current, nvidia-current-updates or nvidia-current-experimental-XXX for most recent testing version.
    apt-cache search nvidia-sett*

    Fix for nVidia with 12.10 missing kernel dpkg reconfigure:
    Thanks for posting this, it fixed my update problem I received ion 12.10 tonight.
