Install the new Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook interface ‘Unity’ [screenshots]

Fellow OMG! writer Benjamin’s over at UDS and one of the key announcements during Mark’s plenary speech was the immediate availability of ‘Unity’: the new Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook interface.

The interface is in the very early stages of development so do bare that in mind when trying it out but, for those who like to stay on the bleeding edgen here’s how to install it: -

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-dx-team/une
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity
  • Choose the Unity session at GDM login.

The ‘dock’ is draggable


Sadly the ‘search’ bar doesn’t work for me just yet!
