In this tutorial I will show you, how to install Yunit Unity 8 Fork on Ubuntu 6.04 LTS server.
Yunit is a user interface shell based on the Unity 8 shell originally developed for the Unity convergent personal computing environment developed by Canonical Ltd.
Yunit’s about page says, following up with Mark Shuttleworth’s announcement to abandon Unity 8 development, we have forked it and are planning to continue working with the project.
Yunit is now available as an overlay repository for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS xenial (64bit). Open a terminal and execute the following commands. If asked, choose lightdm as display manager:
wget -qO - https://archive.yunit.io/yunit.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add
echo 'deb [arch=amd64] http://archive.yunit.io/ubuntu/ xenial main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yunit.list
echo 'deb-src http://archive.yunit.io/ubuntu/ xenial main' | sudo tee --append /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yunit.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install yunit-desktop
The following have been tested and should work with an existing ubuntu 16.04, ubuntu gnome 16.04, lubuntu 16.04 and xubuntu 16.04 installation.
