I run my games through my media center computer, which runs Mythbuntu. However, the following may get this to work in Ubuntu running Unity:
1. Install CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm), if it's not already installed. You can find it in the Ubuntu Software Center, or install it from the command line by opening a terminal and typing:
2. Open ccsm and go to the area marked "Utility." Make sure "Workarounds" is checked (See the first screenshot below), and then click on the word "Workarounds".Code:sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
3. In the new menu that opens, make sure that Legacy Fullscreen Support is checked (See the second screenshot below).
4. You may need to reboot, or at least log out and back in to your Unity session, for the change to take effect.
5. Try to set the Fullscreen:0 in the Torchlight config file, as described in earlier posts.
EDIT: I just installed torchlight on my computer running Unity, and I can confirm that this works.

I have a question - where is localsettings.txt? I can't find it in ,,home", neither /usr/local/games I am using Nautilus and nothing have happened :/
The localsettings.txt file is in the .runicgames/Torchlight folder in your home directory. It won't exist unless you've tried to open the game at least once.
I can confirm that turning on "Legacy Full screen" support solved my issue

I got a weird bug here. I have checked the mentioned option in CCSM so Torchlight starts in fullscreen correctly, but when I click fullscreen on its options, the game goes to windowed mode. Unchecking it and rechecking it makes no difference. When I quit and run it again, the game is back at fullscreen mode. While it's in fullscreen, I can still use compiz shortcuts like ctrl+alt+arrow to change workspaces.
