View Full Version : [ubuntu] Graphics Drivers + Gnome Shell

February 22nd, 2012, 04:08 AM
Hi all,

I logged myself into gnome shell to check it out, because I liked it when I had Ubuntu in VirtualBox.
The problem is, when I go into gnome, it takes me to gnome classic, not shell.

I suspect the problem is that the graphics drivers for my system aren't installed. I have the Intel 915M Chipset and an Nvidia 550M. I'd rather have the Intel one handle the desktop and the Nvidia for special situations. I don't know how to set this up, or how to solve my problem above(if it turns out to be unrelated and I was wrong). Help?
