    While it wouldn't really matter if you remove the || may as well fix the mistake.

    Open up /unity/unity8/build in a text editor.
    scroll down to line 55, put your cursor to the immediate left of the first | and backspace till it is on a line right below "unity-lens-applications \"
    Where on that line doesn't particularly matter, far left is ok, see screen (point is that there can't be an empty line between line # 53 & || exit 5
    Then ./build -s will run

    Thank you so much! But now there's another problem. The ./build -s works, but then when I do the next command which is ./build it comes up with this error:

    Code:

    You know... never mind about this whole thing. I wish I could do it, but it just messed up my system and now the unity dash looks really weird. Take a look at the screenshot:

    Didn't see anything wrong with your screen of Dash.
    Anyway as mentioned - there really isn't much to do with the unity8 build atm for users, so no big loss.

    it just messed up my system
    That is why I experiment with an installation on another partition. Well, actually, several installations of several partitions. If things go badly wrong I can always re-install. Besides, I always have a Ubuntu that I do not mess with as standby. Then I can take a break from messing around and do some proper work (stretching the definition of both "proper" and "work" quite a bit).

    Regards.

    „Code“ tags would be easier to read than this bold... In my humble opinion...

    +1. A heads up: use code tags, please, not bold text. Bold is considered shouting and bad forum etiquette when used on large chunks of text.

    Got this and fixed with -c for clean, which just deletes the build directory.

    ./build -c

    Re: How to install Unity 8 on 13.10

    Did a zsync of 13.10.0-2 today, fresh install.

    Started down the instructions for unity8 in this thread.

    It wanted to install bzr (bazaar) whatever that is.

    bazaar wanted a launchpad id. What for? I gave it one.

    bazaar wanted a shell id so the internet could shell into my pc. That's a security exposure of the first order.

    Followed all the instructions didn't work.

    No idea how launchpad could shell into my pc anyway, since it is on a hidden network.

    Bisarre result - no unity desktop. No applets. No network icon. Nothing.

    All I've got is wallpaper and a cursor, and I can open a terminal session and start firefox.

    Ctrl-Alt-Del logs out, there is a vestige of some fait applets so I could get the hidden network connected. As a matter of policy, saucy does not automatically connect to a hidden network even though it is the only network and saucy has the key already. Manual intervention required to tell it to connect using the info it has already. On every boot. That's a bear with just wallpaper and a cursor, and a terminal session with no way I know of to start system settings. Yes there's a launchpad bug #. Network developers not interested, it's working the way they want it to. Automatically disconnect on boot, that is.

    Could not find any way to get unity desktop back.

    If unity8 pre-req is bazaar, and bazaar wants to open my pc so the internet can shell into my personal pc, I don't want any. As far as I can tell (I hope) it won't work, I'd better re-install to wipe out all vestiges of bazaar (I hope).
