comment dpkg can't find libicu even though it is installed
Adding the lucid repo to /etc/apt/sources.list and then installing libicu42 seems to have gotten around the problem. What I still find strange is that there are other workstations here that have libicu48 and libicu52 and they are able to install the package. But, at least I got it working on this machine!

comment dpkg can't find libicu even though it is installed
@AndreaCorbellini: I had thought that it was asking for 42 or better. Isn't that what >=4.2-1 means? If it can only work with libicu42 then I'd need to force it into ubuntu 14, though I haven't been able to find an ubuntu package for libicu42. I know that the package can be installed into ubuntu 14 - I know it's been done, but I've never done it and I am having trouble figuring it out (the only documentation suggest running sudo apt-get --fix-broken which doesn't work since --fix-broken doesn't seem to be valid for this version of apt-get).

comment start-stop-daemon not removing old pid file
Thanks, I didn't know it would not remove old PID files. I'll just add the rm -f $PID_FILE.

I've tried unity, unity --replace, and compiz --replace and what I got was a single window maximized across both monitors. There was no menu bar and no way to access the desktop.

At what point in the process does this happen? What's on the screen just before this starts?

Did the videos stop working at the same time you applied any system updates?
