Using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits. Integrated Intel GMA X4500 GPU in Intel Chipset G41.

Additional Driver reported nothing. So I assume graphic driver is OK. However, it looks like I can only run Unity 2D.

Is the Intel GMA X4500 GPU compatible with Unity3D? Is yes, what should I do to activate it?

BTW, is there an easy way to check win which mode (2D or 3D) Unity is running? Currently I use Ubuntu Tweak and read the Overview section.

Thanks in advance for any help.

before you log in you can choose session Ubuntu (3d) or ubuntu-2D

in terminal you can type
echo $DESKTOP_SESSION
to see which unity do you run and with

/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -pyou can check if you can use 3D.

But I'm afraid that you cannot. But also if you want to, you can try to force it. But it might not works as it should:

sudo vi /etc/environment
go to the bottom, press insert, and add line

UNITY_FORCE_START=1
press ESC and type

:wq
to write and quit.

Reboot PC and try to log in with ubuntu and type again
echo $DESKTOP_SESSION
