I got this too. Didn't notice it before install as running from the Live, it couldn't run unity anyway. I've always had to install proprietary drivers anyway before having any serious eyecandy so expected things to work out after doing that. That being said, when going from Lucid to Natty, I had to go back from nvidia-173 that I used before to nvidia-96 to get things working. Now, if I mark nvidia-96 for install in Synaptic, it threatens to remove my entire Xorg. Why's it even there if it breaks your system? I really hope the right guys, whether at nvidia, X.org, or elsewhere are able to take some action here.
