how to make unity work with nvidia
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 final, then it said "it appears that your hardware is incompatible with unity, go to login screen, select ubuntu classic". I use nvidia, it had a compatibility problems with linux, so it made ubuntu mouse cursor sporadically disappear and fedora never appear at all, so I installed the proprietary nvidia driver, rebooted to finish installation and unity worked!
(this step may not be nedded
on top right, light switch icon -> switch from you -> on top, select yourself -> on bottom, select ubuntu classic
temporarily, use ubuntu classic)
(this step is definitely needed
System -> Administration -> Additional Drivers -> nvidia current recommended -> Install -> Restart to complete installation
permantenly, use ubuntu unity)
enjoy default settings
