I was testing to install Ubuntu Unity on Linux Mint 17. The installation was successful and I feel like using Ubuntu 14.04 rather than Linux Mint 17 :). I love the flexibility of Linux system. We can install other Desktop environment on our Linux.
Thats not Ubuntu, that’s Linux Mint 17 with Unity desktop.
If you want to try, you can use the following commands to install Ubuntu Unity on Linux Mint 17. I am using Linux Mint 17 Qiana Cinnamon 64 bit edition. I haven’t tested another version of Linux Mint.
sudo apt-get install unity unity-scope-askubuntu unity-lens-applications unity-webapps-bbcnews unity-greeter ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends indicator-applet-complete
When done, simply log out or reboot Linux Mint 17. On the login screen you can choose Ubuntu from the list before logging in.
