I’m using Lubuntu for a while now, but found a couple of details that I wanted to view with Unity (that’s another story).
Ok, the thing is: I’ve tried on a VM with Lubuntu to install Unity (
sudo apt-get install unity) When the installation is over. I selected in the Lubuntu login Unity/Unity2D but did not work.
Right now I’m installing
ubuntu-desktop, I am presuming that will work, but also it will change my login for example.
Is there a way to do a “clean” installation of Unity but not make major changes on my Lubuntu?
I would prefer Gnome-Shell instead of Unity.
Here is Solutions:
To install unity, run the following command in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
To install gnome-shell, do the same in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
You can choose the default login manager as per your preference.
It is very easy to install Gnome-shell in Lubuntu 12.10.
Open Synaptic Package Manager, reload it, search for Gnome-shell and install it. There is no need to install Ubuntu-desktop.
You can also agree to install GDM, which would give you a nice log in screen.
Restart and log into Gnome.
I am writing from Lubuntu + Gnome shell. No crashes.
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
