It is wiered that I'm not able to reinstall unity-2d on my system.
I removed it as it was not ready to go into the 2D mode. I have XRDP install for which I need Unity-2D.
after removing the unity-2d as it was not working properly. I run below command and then rebooted system before trying to reinstall it.
apt-get -f purge unity-2d lightdm add-apt-repository --remove ppa:unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily apt-get -f purge apt-get -f remove apt-get -f autoremove apt-get -f remove apt-get clean apt-get autoclean dpkg --configure -a then rebooted the system using init 6
now I took the ssh of my system and then i reinstalled unity using below commands
apt-get -f install --reinstall lightdm root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# add-apt-repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily/ubuntu trusty main" root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# add-apt-repository "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily/ubuntu trusty main" Error: 'deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily/ubuntu trusty main' invalid root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# add-apt-repository ppa:unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily
To install Unity 2D, type the following commands in a terminal:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install unity-2d
This will install all of the necessary dependencies to run Unity 2D, including a "Unity 2D" session that you'll need to login with.
Then do the following: * log out * log back in and choose the "Unity 2D" session in the drop-down menu at the bottom of the login screen * you will then be running Unity 2D

above errors stared coming after I imported the PPA file of unity-2d, before that it was not there, still tried to reinstall unity-2d using below commands:
root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# apt-get -f reinstall unity-2d E: Command line option 'f' [from -f] is not known. root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# apt-get -f install unity-2d Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done unity-2d is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded. root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~# restart lightdm lightdm start/running, process 2926 root@searce-OptiPlex-380-01:~#
didn't see any error while installing but even after restarting the lightdm or even after rebooting the system I am not able to see the unity-2d option at the login screen nor it is working in XRDP. Also I do not see any menu or Icons when I login to the system physically or over XRDP.
can anyone help me. Thanks in advance.
