    @JacobVlijm He's asking about installing the desktop from Elementary on Ubuntu, which is a possible duplicate of the question he's linked to. – Carl H Jun 1 '15 at 13:00
  • i have install pantheon and it is not active for me! – Digicom Jun 1 '15 at 13:06
  • Completely restart LightDM by Ctrl+Alt+Backspace (if configured) or simply reboot. – s3lph Jun 1 '15 at 13:10

I used below code and it is install and work for me:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/testing
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install elementary-desktop
  • That's better than the previous version. – A.B. Jun 1 '15 at 18:17
  • sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/testing; sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get install elementary-desktop is enough. You don't need sudo apt-get update twice. – A.B. Jun 1 '15 at 18:18
