Basically as is the title how do you install Myunity on 12.10? I've tried adding the repository ppa:myunity/ppa and performing:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myunity/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install myunity

At which point I received the error:

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/myunity/ppa/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Myunity depends on gambas2 but Ubuntu 12.10 release comes with gambas3

Myunity packages are not supported for 12.10 release hence they are removed from here

So by adding PPA wont help you to install Myunity.


Instead of going through all that headache install something that works as well as My Unity and is supported for Quantal, Unsettings has its own ppa at https://launchpad.net/~diesch/+archive/testing


According to Here, the PPAs don't yet support Quantal, you can check this link to see what ubuntu versions are supported:


There is no Quantal (12.10) there.


I tried Unsettings, and it is quite powerful (i.e. - quite a ways more powerful than the screenshot makes it look like initially, I think). I definitely recommend trying it.

I had earlier found out that it is also possible to have CompizConfig Settings Manager on Ubuntu 12.10.

It can be installed with the command

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Once it is installed it can be started with the command ccsm

Once CompizConfig Settings Manager is started, you can select the "Ubuntu Unity Plugin" under the desktop section, and that shows several Unity configuration options.
