    after updating Parallels on my Mac I have graphic issues in Unity on Ubuntu 14.04.
    Example: [​IMG]

    Do you habe any idea how to fix this problem?
    On Ubuntu 15.10 everything is fine.
    Parallels Version 11.1.0 (32202), with the version before, everything was fine.

    Does anybody else have the same problem?
    I just tested some kernels (3.16, 3.19, 4.2). Always with the same errors.

    I'm in the same boat. Had to revert to prior Parallels build. I made a clone of the VM immediately before the unfortunate installation of the latest build. Curiously enough when trying the latest build with another Ubuntu 14.04 VM (newer installation) I didn't have that effect. On both VM machines immediately after booting I have a message about some missing Parallels Tools related kernel modules.

    New release today, but it did not fix anything :(

    I don't know if it helps, but I had to do following to recover my libraries after upgrade, I use xfce as a fallback by the way:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx

    reinstalling libgl2 did not help either.
    I am also using xfce at the moment.
    It ist really disappointing paying a lot of money once a year for product which does work
    work properly. I am really not interested in windows, but Linux is a must have.

    To be fair Parallels Tools doesn't use the open-vm-tools, so integration into rolling distributions is really really hard. They change their ABI on purpose, so Parallels Tools needs to update as soon as a change in the Distribution ABI occurs. And Ubuntu/Fedora changes their ABI really often.

    However I can tell you that the License model of Parallels is way better than their competitor.
