    Unable to install my unity in ubuntu 13.10

    I have been trying to install my unity, however whennever I run sudo apt-get update the packages get a 404.

    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/myunity/ppa/ubuntu/dists/saucy/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
    
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/myunity/ppa/ubuntu/dists/saucy/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
    
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/myunity/ppa/ubuntu/dists/saucy/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    so that when I try to install it I get this:

    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package myunity

    For 13.10 you would need to install the Unity Tweak Tool which is in the software center and there is a development PPA as well.

    +1 for unity-tweak-tool.
    Myunity hasn't been updated to any release beyond 12.04.

    Not sure it still works but another one is unsettings

    Thank you so much! I can't believe I was downloading the wrong program.

    No problem.
    It's the nature of the beast.
    Programs come and go and users tend to recommend that which they know works for them.
    However, as development proceeds, things get mixed up and older tools can fall to the wayside.

    I think it took me at least a month into quantal's release to realize that myunity was broken, and that I should stop recommending it for newer versions of Ubuntu beyond 12.04.

    Remove that old PPA from Software & Updates > Other Software or it will cause errors.
