Want to give Unity 8 a try on Ubuntu 16.04? It's easy!

Today April 21st 2016 Canonical Ltd released Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - a version with 5 year support time! Read my earlier post to download your copy of the  latest Ubuntu.

Ok, once Ubuntu 16.04 is up and running it's possible to try Unity 8 which is still in try-out phase. As a matter of fact Unity 8 runs on Ubuntu 14.0.4 as well. Ok, give me that Unity 8! Try this (AT YOUR OWN RISK!):

Install Unity8:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity8-desktop-session-mir

Log out. In login select a little Ubuntu logo, then Unity8-Mir and type in your password. What's supposed to happen after setup of Unity 8? Well, be happy that your PC and Ubuntu still work! Remember, it's still a try-out!

How does it look like? Watch out! After the traditional Desktop one might get confused. It's... different. Let's hope they (Canonical Ltd) will go all the way to the end and we will see Unity 8 in action in the next Ubuntu 16.10!

Tap that Ubuntu logo

Choose Unity8-Mir

Choose Phablet

There is not that much ready just yet
