Now, I realize that for novice users (or even those who abhor the terminal), building Unity just for a couple features seems kind of silly. So, I decided to sit down last night and try to figure out packaging and PPAs...
So, if you were hesitant about trying this before, you can now add my PPA if you feel more comfortable doing that.
NOTE: Since I'm running 32-bit, I've only tested the i386 packages. I'll need someone running 64-bit to let me know if it works okay.
NOTE: If you followed the tutorial originally, please remove ~/.compiz-1 and the 'staging' folder before you do this.
Add my PPA by doing this:
...then, simply run an update:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
If you'd like to revert back to the offical Ubuntu packages, simply use PPA-purge. First, ensure it is installed:
...then, remove my PPA:
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
I've tried this on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit. Like I said, my PPA contains 64-bit packages, but they have not been tested. I attempted my best to make "proper" packages, but I'm no expert. Use my PPA at your own peril!
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped
I'll try my best to keep these builds up-to-date with the official Unity packages, but I can't make any promises. Good luck, guys!
