    @sony:~> gnome-shell --replace
    failed to create drawable

    This might help
    After doing a bit more of research, and looking into my Xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log for the most recent one), I realized that the problem was that my nVidia driver was incorrectly compiled, for it had no DRI support (which is required for running gnome-shell). The solution lied in installing the Xorg development files (sudo apt-get install xorg-dev should do) and recompiling the nVidia driver.

    After this, I rebooted and everything was working properly.

    Thanks for reply. I have dual graphics system which can't be switched by any options in BIOS. By default, intel graphics is being used. So I have a malfunctioned Clutter with Intel graphics card.
