    Unityshell-rotated PPA broken?

    Hi,

    I've tried to install unityshell-rotated, as I would like my launcher at the bottom of the screen. However, when I add the ppa, I get the following:

    Code:
    gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpapd1gp/secring.gpg' created
    gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpapd1gp/pubring.gpg' created
    gpg: requesting key 4933B6AB from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
    gpg: /tmp/tmpapd1gp/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
    gpg: key 4933B6AB: public key "Launchpad PPA for Pavel Golikov" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)
    OK
    but then upon update:
    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/paullo612/unityshell-rotated/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
    
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/paullo612/unityshell-rotated/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    and then when trying to install, I naturally get:
    Code:
    XX@XXX:~$ sudo apt-get install unityshell-rotated
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package unityshell-rotated
    Am I doing something wrong? Is the PPA broken? If yes, does anyone else know how I can move the unity launcher? I'm on a 12" screen, so vertical screen estate is quite valuable to me.

    AFIK it only worked on the version of Unity for Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit. The last build was almost a year ago. https://launchpad.net/~paullo612/+ar...yshell-rotated

    Yeah, I don't know, the guide I found said 12.04 though. http://ishouvik.com/move-unity-launc...tom-12-0411-10

    Do you know a different way to move it?

    I believe it is not supported after 11.10

    Too bad, but then again it should just be a native choice anyway.
