Like the title suggest is there anyway?
I tried to run Unity 8 on Ubuntu 16.04 in VirtualBox with the Guest Additions installed. When I login into the Unity 8 session from LightDM it's just loads a black screen then its log me out or freezes. I also install Unity 8 though these commands:
sudo apt install unity8-desktop-session-mir sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ci-train-ppa-service/stable-phone-overlay sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Maybe I miss something to install, but when I tried to run Unity 8 in a terminal on top of Unity 7, I get the same thing. However, I get this output:
mathcubes@Ubuntu-VM:~$ unity8 Mode argument was not provided or was set to an illegal value. Using default value of --mode= "full-greeter" file:///usr/share/unity8//OrientedShell.qml:21:1: plugin cannot be loaded for module "Unity.Screens": Cannot load library /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/qml/Unity/Screens/libunityscreensplugin.so: (libqpa-mirserver.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory) import Unity.Screens 0.1 ^
Could I run Unity 8? Is it compatible?
