Ubuntu Unity 2D gets a PPA for Maverick and Natty testers

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The slick Unity 2D we told you about yesterday has now got a PPA for Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04 users to test.

It can’t say how it compares to the regular flavour of Unity becuase that doesn’t work on my computer, but one thing I can certainly say is that it is faster than the regular Desktop Session.


To add the PPA and install Unity 2D run the commands below in a terminal:-

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily && sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install unity-qt-default-settings

Choose ‘Unity Qt’ at the Login screen to use.
