    Could we please keep this on topic, instead of sniping at each other.

    If you need to install a local package and want to try packagekit
    • remove the sessioninstaller package
    • install the gdebi-core and gnome-packagekit-tools packages and reboot
    • check the menu entry for the softwareinstaller, as you can see in my screenshot, it should say 'gpk-install-local-file %F' and NOT 'gksu gpk-install-local-file %F', if it does, remove gksu and close the menu (packagekit does not need to be run as super user).
    • Now you should be able to install local packages by double clicking them

    when you are finished you can install the sessioninstaller again (you'll need it for codecs in Totem).

    In deed

    This project is almost certain to reach fruition since "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" is now in the repos.

    Those who don't like it, or don't care about it, should just ignore it.

    Use whatever you like, just don't drop bombs on the stuff you don't like

    How boring would it be if we had only one option

    Bummer, I had a much longer reply written out (with reasons) but didn't hit "Submit" and then I thought I'd log out of GNOME to see what the latest Unity updates did. I'll try to reply later if I'm not too busy, but basically, I won't be adding gnome-control-center and gnome-settings-daemon to the official GNOME3 PPA. They have a very real chance of breaking Unity.

    You can find some related thoughts at bug 1045914.

    Re: Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta released

    We have another, more serious issue with Ubuntu 12.10 now, and concerning Unity.

    The latest libunity9 package (6.8.0-0ubuntu1) depends on unity-common now.

    This is due to the fact that Unity may crash if unity-common is not installed.

    OK, but what happens now:
    If we, who use ununtu-gnome-remix, and perhaps do not use unity at all, now upgrade to the libunity_6.8.0, we get unity-common and compiz with all its dependencies installed too.
    This is because unity-common depends on compiz-gnome

    And compiz-gnome in turn depends on a number of compiz related stuff.

    The main issues here is that ubuntu-gnome-remix uses Nautilus, that is built against libunity9 and it depends on it.
    If that dependency would be lowered to recommends or suggests, there would not be any issues, because users who would have only Gnome-shell DE installed could then remove libunity9.

    So where can I find nautilus, that does not depend on libunity9?
    Gnome3 PPA perhaps?
    How about that Jeremy?

    I would think that ppa is hesitant to provide builds that break unity though probably in the case of libunity it's more the unity launcher support, not anything broken
    (bookmarks auto added to nautilus launcher's quicklists, ect.

    I typically use a git nautilus here on unity, sometime with, most times without the support patch, ie. no dep on libunity. No big loss, can be added to the .desktop but may be enough to disallow doing in that ppa.

    (Ot - naut 3.6 going to 3.6.1 breaks unity launcher use on this seemingly insig. commit

    Re: Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta released

    I was wondering.. I saw an article about Gnome's new Software Center and wondering if it will be included in uGuntu?

    @Harry33
    I see your point, it would need some creative thinking from Jeremy to fix this one, a real 'dealbreaker'

    from the Change logs for “libunity” source package in Quantal:
    [ Dmitry Shachnev ]
    * Make libunity9 depend on unity-common >= 6.0.0-0ubuntu3 (LP: #1055019).
    I think this proves the need for the 'Ubuntu Gnome Remix' to have it's own packages as I have said earlier ( like Xubuntu, Lubuntu... etc ).
    The Ubuntu packages will most likely be more and more tangled up with Unity

    Yeah I have seen it too, the Gnome App Center
    Gnome developers are still working on it and it may be included in Gnome 3.8, looks very promising

    Thanks Harry for noticing the libunity9 problem. I've reported bug 1062099 and it is being worked on.

    I think you severely underestimate the complications that would cause.
