Thanks to your answers and this discussion. I ran into this problem yesterday.
Although I tried the instructions by @cjjefcoat on #57, it didn't give me back
my display as expected. Unity got screwed up and although I could see the
display, the rendering was not proper. The windows didn't have the title bar
and most keyboard functionality won't work. I didn't even have the task bar.
I went back to -112 version of the kernel but only found the same result. So I
reinstalled all NVIDIA drviers and uninstalled CUDA with no luck at all.
Finally I tried restarting Unity by following #14 here -
and it worked for me :D
Now I tried running everything on 116 kernel and it works. So in case unity
screws up for any of you after you reinstall the 116 kernel, try restarting
Unity and hope it works :D
