Re: Nvidia-Current Low Resolution and No Unity
I suggest you delete the /etc/grub.d file that blacklists nouveau, and check that there is no other file doing the same, nor an entry in blacklist,conf. Then reboot and see what the result is without installing an nvidia driver.
If you already have one installed, first use 'sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-package-name'.
Should that not give you a use-able GUI then I can only repeat my previous suggestion that you revert to 12.04.1 or 12.04.2.
Plus, of course, on the 25th, 13.04 is released and I gather it has a lot of improvements, especially for the more recent video cards. though I have not yet tried it myself.

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
