I'm running Kubuntu 12.10 with lightdm as the only window manager.
I installed all the dependencies for the unity manager and also installed the unity-greeter from synaptic package manager.
I then edited the lightdm.conf and set it to use the unity greeter.
Then I ran the command :
The xephyr window opened and closed.
When I set the greeter back to kde and tested it, it worked fine.
After that, I tried the manual install and on running ./configure, I got this:
How do I set the environment variables?

configure: error: Package requirements (

) were not met:
No package 'indicator3-0.4' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables UNITY_GREETER_CFLAGS
and UNITY_GREETER_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Please tell me where I am going wrong.
