    Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, so Unity is just one apt-get away.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unity
    Then log out and choose the session "Ubuntu".

    Keep in mind Unity 3D is a Compiz plug-in and don't know if mint 14 has it installed . To use the Unity settings you will need the CCSM.

    Obvious question: why not use Ubuntu?
    Obvious question 2.0: have you logged out and selected the Unity session?

    Re: how to install unity in linuxmint 14

    To install Unity on Linux Mint, at the very least you will need to to install:
    - unity
    - gnome-session

    Without the latter (which you didn't yet install I think), you won't be able to run Unity. You may also need to replace mdm (Linux Mint's login screen) with lightdm or gdm. But perhaps not, so give it a go without first.

    You can get the full Ubuntu experience on Linux Mint by installing the meta-package "ubuntu-desktop" that installs the complete Unity desktop including all its included default programs and add-ons.

    And if you need the Linux Mint goodness you can install their PPAs.
