    Question Only Unity 2D after update ... bug maybe?

    I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (am going to upgrade when 13.04 comes out, maybe earlier to 12.10...dunno) on a Toshiba Satellite A105 S4284 (I believe) w. Intel Centrino Duo chip.
    Here's my graphics card info, from terminal:
    nate@texno-Satellite-A105:~$ lspci | grep 
    VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
    Anyways, I did a whole bunch of Ubuntu updates yesterday (running Unity 3D plenty fine for all of my previous using as well as regular GNOME) and now I can only start in Unity 2D. I ran the
      /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    command from the terminal and this is what I got:
    OpenGL vendor string:   VMware, Inc. 
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300) 
    OpenGL version string:  2.1 Mesa 8.0.4  
    Not software rendered:    no 
    Not blacklisted:          yes 
    GLX fbconfig:             yes 
    GLX texture from pixmap:  yes 
    GL npot or rect textures: yes 
    GL vertex program:        yes 
    GL fragment program:      yes 
    GL vertex buffer object:  yes 
    GL framebuffer object:    yes 
    GL version is 1.4+:       yes  
    Unity 3D supported:       no
    Unity 3D worked great for my using (11.04 to 12.04 LTS) and it was fine on 12.04 LTS until I updated. GNOME 3 also worked fine, but it also will only start in GNOME Classic mode.

    I ran the
         unity --replace
    command in terminal (got it from another post similar to my problem, didn't help though), but it just said "Hello there! Have a whole caboodle of error messages that make almost no sense!" and froze, taking my system with it. I had to Ctrl+C the command and log out, because Unity 2D froze.
    I had run apt-get update prior to this, so I thought I would restart my computer, but nothing changed, I had the same problem when I logged back in.
    I would post the output, but restarting the computer erased the info I copied (duh, should have known, since copy/paste is stored in RAM), so I don't have that. I can run it again, it that will help.

    I tried logging in as guest, same problem. I created a new account and tried logging that way, ditto.

    Any help is accepted,
