I'd like to try Unity, but I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 (64-bit). How I can I install the Unity desktop environment?

I tried "sudo apt-get install unity", but after installation and choosing "Gnome" from the login screen, it fails and displays an error dialog saying that the Gnome environment cannot be loaded.
