    Unity broken after wine install/remove

    Hello Everybody!

    Yesterday I installed the nvidia driver for my laptop. What actually worked in the end.

    Linux: Ubuntu 12.04
    Graphic card: GeForce GT 330M

    But today, after restart (computer was switched off while I was sleeping ) it does not use the nvidia driver anymore.


    1. I cannot set icon size of launcher anymor
    2. openGL does not work anymore
    3. all cool window effects (shadows, transition) do not work anymore

    all in all when I was searching I could find out that it is connected to the unity mode 2d and 3d, while it refuses to use 3d.

    that is the result of running the **unity_test -p**

    Yesterday it worked, today not --> it is not depending on the hardware, something broke when deinstalling wine1.5, with this I am quiet sure but I do not know how to fix it.



    so I tried to reinstall xorg with:

    apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg
    apt-get install xserver-xorg

    nothing changed

    and when I tried just to reinstall the graphics driver with

    apt-get remove --purge nvidia*

    it tells me that nothing was removed...

    what could I try???
