Is there a way to check through the command line if I'm running Ubuntu Unity or not ?

You can use ps (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man1/ps.1.html) and grep (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man1/grep.1posix.html).

ps x | grep unity

That will show you if you are running any processes with 'unity' in the name. If you are running Unity, then there should be quite a few processes to see.

To find out if your computer is Unity 3D compatible use the command below .

/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
