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.
Here's my graphics card info, from terminal:
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
nate@texno-Satellite-A105:~$ lspci | grep
VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
command from the terminal and this is what I got:
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 ran the
command in terminal (got it from another post similar to my problem, didn't help though), 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.
I tried logging in as guest, same problem. I created a new account and tried logging that way, ditto.
Any help is accepted,
