So I have been using linux mint for a while now. A few months ago my Gnome shell crashed and I was unable to use the full 3d features and loaded into fallback mode only. From that day (around 2 months ago) I still have only fallback mode (both Gnome and cinnamon). I installed Linux mint maya, and Ubuntu 12.04 both as windows file and complete installation in an external hard drive. and for many times I sitll cannot fix this problem. ps I made sure to download all the drivers for my graphics card. what could the problem be?

What happens when you execute gnome-shell --replace in an xterm? Does it print any useful message? –  eppesuig Jan 18 '13 at 14:05

You found the problem: check your X driver and verify if GLX is supported. What video card do you have? And what driver are you using in /etc/X11/xorg.conf? –  eppesuig Jan 19 '13 at 8:35

I've got crash when using Rhythmbox, switched to amarok and everything is ok now. It may be application (not drivers) problem then.

he's not describing a crash. he's saying that 3D isn't working. –  strugee Jul 31 '13 at 7:17
