Is there any way install budgie desktop environment on Ubuntu and is it safe to install it?
The creator of it does not use Ubuntu and is not capable to create packages for it.
The launchpad page related to budgie is still empty.
So the answer for now: no.
If anyone is willing and capable helping getting this into Ubuntu: see the mail address here

You can build budgie desktop from source yourself
sudo apt-get install build-essential gnome-common gobject-introspection libglib2.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libpulse-dev libpulse-mainloop-glib0 libmutter-dev libwnck-3-dev libupower-glib-dev libgnome-menu-3-dev libc6-dev git clone https://github.com/evolve-os/budgie-desktop.git cd budgie-desktop ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
If you are using Ubuntu 14.04, you can try my unofficial budgie desktop PPA
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sukso96100/budgie-desktop sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install budgie-desktop
I did try out Budgie Desktop Environment, and here are a few notes I would like to make:-
That's all! That's the experience I had with Budgie.
