I am working on a custom-build of 12.04 with OpenBox, on low-resource netbooks.
I have installed Unity, but it is not available at login, nor by any other apparent means, and I cannot find any coherent answers.
I want to use Unity as an interface, without having to install all the 'heavy' dependencies, such as Nautilus.
Is this possible, or is it necessary to use a full-weight, resource-hungry, standard Ubuntu installation?
I'm using lightdm.
Running gnome-session defeats the object: I've already removed as many lxde components to lighten the load.
I'd have liked to run unity on openbox, but the two don't seem to work together. I edited the startup script, and had to re-edit it from a live cd session. it was a close shave!!! Even running 'unity --replace' crashed the desktop to login.
I'll stick with openbox and tint2.
