            I had the same problem and have also use ppa-purge to make my system working again.

            I could get in ccsm, where the unity plugin was disabled. But enabling it didn't bring back unity.

              Same here. It may be something with mesa git, cause xorg-edgers gives same result. Odd thing is that not only other DE works (like openbox or gnome), but also games - means there is proper hardware acceleration.

              Unity spits something about failed to load radeonsi and issue with swrast.so (undefined symbol: __glap_tls_Dispatch).

                  • Radeon VDPAU don't work

                    Before one week I installed Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon, after that video acceleration vdpau don't work anymore.
                    I have AMD Radeon HD 5670 graphics.
                    When I try to play some video in terminal i get this error:

                    mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffmpeg12vdpau Don.Jon.mkv

                    I can't figure out what is the problem, is that some new bug in mesa or something else I forgot to do.

                          • Last update broke Hardware acceleration Intel HD

                            Hello,
                            the last update seemed to go wrong with the Intel HD Graphics
                            I have in my Lenovo X201 Tablet.
                            The screen has lots of lines and makes reading or viewing practically impossible.
                            I have reviewed the log files, but do not see any obvious errors. I will post those if needed.
                            I am running Linux Mint 16 - Petra

                            Here is screenshot:




                            Framebuffer and vesa modes are ok.

                            I also tried to revert to the original drivers by using the ppa-purge as instructed, however
                            this did not work in my case.

                            Thanks.

                              • After making my post about the video issue with the INTEL HD Graphic
                                I saw a update!
                                I did it....sadly, no change.
                                Still in vesa mode.
