Ubuntu – How to reenable Unity 3D after installing Bumblebee


I installed Bumblebee to solve Nvidia/Intel driver problem. It does work well, but it also disabled Unity 3D.

How can I get my Unity 3D back?

Best Answer

Bumblebee is pretty unstable right now, especially in 12.04.

Nvidia drivers a pretty solid, even if they aren't open sourced. I recommend sticking to the official driver. I installed Bumblebee on a 9800GT and it took out my whole xserver.


sudo apt-get autoremove --purge bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-current

and download the official driver from nvidia: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
