    Question [NOT FIXED] Only Unity 2D after update ... bug?

    [NOT SOLVED
    I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (am going to upgrade when 13.04 comes out, maybe earlier to 12.10...dunno) on a Toshiba Satellite A105 S4284 (I believe) w. Intel Centrino Duo chip.
    Anyways, I did a whole bunch of Ubuntu updates yesterday (running Unity 3D plenty fine for all of my previous using as well as regular GNOME) and now I can only start in Unity 2D. I ran the
    Code:
    /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    command from the terminal and this is what I got:
    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string:   VMware, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300)
    OpenGL version string:  2.1 Mesa 8.0.4
    
    Not software rendered:    no
    Not blacklisted:          yes
    GLX fbconfig:             yes
    GLX texture from pixmap:  yes
    GL npot or rect textures: yes
    GL vertex program:        yes
    GL fragment program:      yes
    GL vertex buffer object:  yes
    GL framebuffer object:    yes
    GL version is 1.4+:       yes
    
    Unity 3D supported:       no
    Unity 3D worked great for my using (11.04 to 12.04 LTS) and it was fine on 12.04 LTS until I updated. GNOME 3 also worked fine, but it also will only start in GNOME Classic mode.

    I tried logging in as guest, same problem. I created a new account and tried logging that way, ditto.

    Any help is accepted,

    Question Re: Only Unity 2D after update ... bug?

    I ran the
    Code:
    unity --replace
    command in terminal, but it just said "Hello there! Have a whole caboodle of error messages that make almost no sense!" and froze, taking my system with it. I had to Ctrl+C the command and log out, because Unity 2D froze.
    I had run apt-get update prior to this, so I thought I would restart my computer, but nothing changed, I had the same problem when I logged back in.
    I would post the output, but restarting the computer erased the info I copied (duh, should have known, since copy/paste is stored in RAM), so I don't have that. I can run it again, it that will help.

    Here's some more info...

    I, after trying several different fixes (all unsuccessful) from other forums/posts, was trying something else and ran the
    Code:
    nate@texno-Satellite-A105:~$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    command. When I did, however, I got this:
    Code:
    nate@texno-Satellite-A105:~$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
    Error: GLX is not available on the system

    HELP!
    I am affeared I broke my system.

    This is the key comment from that very first command

    Unity 3D supported: no
    Whatever you may think, you cannot of been running Unity 3D. This tells me that you are using the Nouveau open source driver and you should be getting a Unity 3D experience using llvmpipe which is used now on 12.10 to replace Ubuntu/Unity 2D.

    Are you sure you did not upgrade to 12.10? That would remove Ubuntu 2D and put in llvmpipe. You can try using Additional Drivers to put in a proprietary video driver. But that will not change the fact of

    Unity 3D supported: no
