Unity 7.6 in the offical repos.


While I'm not affilated with the Ubuntu Unity Team, I am a satisfied user of this desktop environment and its Ubuntu flavor (which recently became a official Ubuntu flavor over a month ago).
Recently, Rudra Saraswat and his Ubuntu Unity team has started an unofficial repository which made it possible to install Unity on arch (for the first time since 6 years ago when Unity-For-Arch was abandoned). I believe it should included in the official arch repository and be quickly installed on Arch Linux, just as you would with GNOME, KDE, Cinnamon, etc.

Re: Unity 7.6 in the offical repos.

Arch is entirely maintained by volunteers. If a package isn't in the repositories, it's because none of the current developers are aware of it (probably not the case in this circumstance) or aren't motivated to maintain it.

All the best,
