I have Gnome 3 installed in my 11.04 and I was wondering if I can get 11.10's unity in it

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! :) This is a possible duplicate of How do I install and use the latest version of GNOME 3? – James Oct 25 '11 at 12:25
@jrg He wants to install the version of Unity from 11.10, not install GNOME Shell. – Kris Harper Oct 25 '11 at 12:36
@rooot45 However, in order to do that, he needs to install the GNOME 3 stack - the only way to get that is to install GNOME shell. – James Oct 25 '11 at 12:42

Googling around I find this:


Ubuntu 11.04 users can upgrade Unity by adding ‘ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ppa‘ to the ‘Software Sources‘ dialog, then running Update Manager."

I haven't tested yet, but may works.-

I think that the only way is to download the source and install it.
