It will create an ISO that will run in UEFI but I am not concerned with that atm. So I have a solid compiler that works on development versions with PCs in BIOS mode. When I get something built that I am satisfied with I'll put up a link for those who may want to test it.

    This sounds good

    Looks like Ubiquity and Ubiquity-frontend-gtk are interconnected with gnome-shell, gnome-shell-common and ubuntu-session. If you are to make live iso with only unity, you'd have to install ubiquity, ubiquity-frontend-gtk using some other way.

    I am doing a study of this but I have to do some other tests first, ie; To use lightdm ..etc..

    It boots very well in UEFI mode with almost no bugs. In BIOS mode there are bugs and a Debian live boot screen With gdm. So I am changing to lightdm and see if that will fix.

    Check in /etc/PinguyBuilder/isolinux, if you are using Pinguy to build it.

    Notwithstanding the effort, ect. I can't fathom the purpose here. Atm unity is available & usable in 17.10 & will be in 18.04, at least to start.
    So what would this "iso" reflect. A point in time artful, some point in time b*, or something else?

    From a general user perspective non lts releases are useless, once eol one has to advance, the repos are moved & locked, ppa builds are no longer possible.
    So my view is as far as unity it's either 16.04 or *possibly* 18.04 if it remains viable & usable. In any event one would want to be able to install & update all the other stuff, whether from the ubuntu repos or ppa's.

    It works just fine. I have an installable Unity7 (live) Only ISO with Ubiquity installers. I am writing this message from a Unity7 only hard install.

    Good pointed questions here.

    1. If it remains stable through 17.10 then it may at some point be considered as an ubuntu-distro in the furture, version unity9 for desktops. Unity8 is already forked to another group so Unity9 would be the logical next step for desktops.

    The current .ISO that I just built this am: runs on the current 17.10 and is fully update-able. It is unity7 only with lightdm.

    The ISO I created this morning , when hard installed, can do all the features you mention above. Again ..idea is to have Unity7 distro Uubuntu. I am not worried about what happens in the repos with 18.04 because all I am getting is "should be's", "probably", "maybe" , "we hope" etc.. and I understand because they have downsized their development resources considerably. I too hope that they continue to keep unity7 during 18.04. The other thing is that I can now hack and modify untiy7 to unity9 and compiz and hopefully clean up some bugs and other issues . Once I do something effective and proper with this I could perhaps request that unity9 be reopened for development, most likely , from a group of community maintainers but also would need Canonical help. It's just an idea. If they shoot that down then maybe a ppa.

    Re: help to make unity Uubuntu test.iso

    Other than sourceforge.. is there anywhere else to upload iso files that is somewhat secure? I cant afford cloud.

    regards..
