I want to place an installer on my Ubuntu 12.04 LiveCD, but now I'm confused. There are only 2 ubiquity-frontend packages:

  • ubiquity-frontend-gtk
  • ubiquity-frontend-kde

But not one for Unity.

Is it possible to use gtk package with Unity or how can I solve this problem?

The gtk package is what is used for the vanilla Unity Ubuntu installer. So yes, ubiquity-frontend-gtk would work fine.

Unity is basically a frontend or a shell to gtk3, much like Gnome Shell is.
