Hi give us the way how you have done in your terminal . –  raaz May 21 '12 at 2:33

Have you followed the instructions and also put this (Install Important Lenses in Ubuntu Unity)‌​: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jsevi83/unity; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/lenses; sudo apt-get update (of course with linebreaks instead of semi-colons)? If so, did you get any errors? –  moewe May 21 '12 at 10:19

Well, it looks like the PPA ppa:jsevi83/unity is not available anymore.

Before you follow the instructions, make sure you know what it means to play around in the /etc/apt/sources.list file: (Wiki.Debian: SourcesList, Help.Ubuntu: Repositories/CommandLine, Help.Ubuntu: Repositories/Ubuntu). You'll have to install the Lenses you are looking for from different sources:

  1. For the Contact Lens

    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/lenses
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install scope-contacts-google
    • sudo apt-get install lens-contacts
  2. The PPA for Tomboy Lens (Webupd8: Unity Tomboy Lens) is not available for 12.04. Add the follwing lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list (open with su privileges).

    • deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/remi.rerolle/unity-lens-tomboy/ubuntu oneiric main
    • deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/remi.rerolle/unity-lens-tomboy/ubuntu oneiric main
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install unity-lens-tomboy This may not work as you expect as it installs a version of the Lens that is not tested for 12.04, but it was the only version I was able to find.
  3. YouTube Lens (OMG!Ubuntu!: Unity YouTube Lens Updates with Browser Free Video Playback)

    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/lenses
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install lens-video scope-youtube
  4. I could not find a Books Lens for 12.04. You could try to add the ppa manually (note that you'll add the version for Oneiric 11.10). Add the follwing lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list (open with su privileges).

    • deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/davidc3/books-lens/ubuntu oneiric main
    • deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/davidc3/books-lens/ubuntu oneiric main

    • And then:

    • sudo apt-get update

    • sudo apt-get install unity-lens-books

This might or might not work.

  1. Grooveshark Lens (OMG!Ubuntu!: Search Grooveshark Tracks From the Unity Music Lens)
    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install unity-scope-grooveshark
