http://askubuntu.com – I haven't been able to get 3d acceleration to work properly on my VBox guest, no matter what I do I always get fallback unity 2d mode, here's what I've tried: Enabled "3d acceleration" on VBoxsettings, set video memory all the way to 128mb. Installed vbox guest additions, checked to see if there was any guest additions pre-installed first, it didn't throw any errors Enabled "Oracle VirtualBox Guest Additions for Linux Module" in "Additional Drivers" Nothing seems to work, I'm using VBox 4.1.10. The guest additions seem to work partially though, before I install them if I maximize my ubuntu (HowTos)
