After the latest updates, xmir died with signal 6. I have been reported this as a bug. Everything messed up, I cannot even start the display manager, I cannot even switch to a VT. Only SysRq can reboot the system.
Also a test case of Mir native in 13.10 can be found here. Sorry for the poor quality, I must buy a new cam.. some day
Gave up on the mess and did a fresh zsync, fresh install, fumbled around with Ollie's notes and the ppa stuff, wound up with duplicate sources.list entries, and
It's working. Dual cursors and all. I'm using the external monitor as I type. ??
Pretty soon it'll figure out it is not supposed to be working and crash, but not yet.
BTW, anyone trying the unity 8 ppa on top of this mess yet?
BTW, I'm no unity fan, I just run it to report bugs. On my tablets 7" 9" 10" I try to set them to "desktop" where possible.
I guess ATM you could test it on ARM based device but reading this:Any pointers on what to do to try unity8?
I think Unity 8 could land on some PPA or to be directly available in Ubuntu 13.10 soon. AFAIK this is the plan to have demo Unity 8 session (mobile one) available in Ubuntu 13.10 and because Unity 8 will not talk X11 anymore it will use Mir directly and not XMir anymore! If you have any ARM device you would put Ubuntu on you could use that PPA for test i guess but if u want to test it on your netbook you have to wait a bit more.
