sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update

no man it is like this after the 3rd step The following packages have unmet dependencies. unity : Depends: libglib2.0-bin but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. –  Sreehari Rajendran Oct 3 '12 at 0:07

From what I gather, this is what you would want to do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-bin
sudo apt-get install unity

This should forcefully install the required dependency. If that does not work, please post the error it prompts in your question.
