Thanks for the responses~
Has anyone successfully gotten the 10.10 Unity UI to work properly. I have been struggling at it for a while.
So far I installed the official Nvidia driver installer. I can get the unity to boot up, but it starts flashing and restarting and basically unusable. It's a shame, because the UI seems so nice. Does anyone know how exactly to get it working. This is kinda the whole reason I got the tablet in the first place.
Should I give pre-release drivers a chance. I don't really care about 3D acceleration, I just want unity to work.
Thanks so much.
EDIT: After doing research, I think this is the bug problem.
Now maybe I could go back to 1.7 or 8 of Xorg. Is there a way to do that?

Reason why i registered here was this Tutorial and to say thanks for it. I read through the compete thread and i just want to say thanks for it
I've just managed to get hold of a TC1100 and have successfully installed 10.10 Netbook edition and have the nvidia-96 driver working but I can't seem to get Compiz working. I've not touched Linux in about 5 years so I'm a little rusty.
I've installed Simple CompizConfig after reading various walkthroughs and I can select the various options under Appearance > Visual Effects but when it goes to apply the settings it reverts back to the 'None' setting.
What's the best way to test that compiz can run? I'm guessing I need to change some options in the xorg.conf but I'm not sure what.
Any pointers would be appreciated!
I don't use the netbook edition, but if I recall correctly there was a clash between compiz and the netbook launcher (which uses clutter) in earlier versions, and this may still be true with Unity in 10.10. This problem will go away with natty, where the new version of Unity uses compiz anyway.
In the mean time, maybe you could switch over to a standard Gnome session - at the GDM login screen, look at the list of sessions available at the bottom of the screen. You may have to select a user name first. If it's not there I'm sure there is a way to install it alongside the Netbook session, probably by installing the 'ubuntu-desktop' package and all its dependencies, but I can't say I've tried it. If Compiz won't enable in the standard session, then there's something deeper wrong (assuming you've followed the instructions about the Nvidia settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf in this thread already).
For reference, my /etc/X11/xorg.conf on 10.10 has just this:I reckon one of the 'AddARGBGLXVisuals' items is superfluous, but I'm not sure which one!Code:Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" DefaultDepth 24 Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True" EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Default Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" "True" Option "RandRRotation" "True" Option "NvAGP" "1" Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True" EndSection

I'm actually using the normal desktop instead of the Netbook desktop and it doesn't work in either
The notebook desktop loads up but as soon as you over over an icon it reloads itself.
I did try the added options to the xorg.conf from this thread but couldn't get the driver to load - I'll try what you've provided and see what happens!
I've fixed it!
Ran it from command-line to see any output and I was just missing a window manager - installed Emerald and it works perfectly!
So it looks like The current release of the nVidia driver along with the automatically detected settings makes everything work out of the box!
I installed Netbook Remix 10.10 on a TC1100 tonight, and I still haven't seen the Unity interface. Got the wireless working, have been updating, etc. How do i switch to the Unity interface if i want to? I got a message on first startup that i would need to type username:ubuntu with a password I forgot, but have just been using the original ubuntu desktop.
