Unity launcher — is it available as a separate package?

Is it possible just to get the unity launcher - JUST be the unity launcher - in desktop edition? As an alternative to Avant, Docky or Gnome Do?

Update: I would just to point out that we now know the 11.04 desktop edition with have the Unity interface by default!

  • Just for clarity: 11.04 Desktop edition will use a desktop version of unity's current interface. But you're probably correct in that it will have the dock. I looking forward to this, just hope it's as good as dockbarX.=) – Malabarba Oct 26 '10 at 12:17

You could use the Unite theme for dockbarx that is intended to replicate Unity. Dockbarx is available in a PPA although you will have to install the theme seperately.

An alternative to the unity dock is the dockbarx applet, make sure you install the extra themes so get the unity themes (assuming you are using Ubuntu 10.10, an 'apt-get install ubuntu-netbook')

This is the PPA link: https://launchpad.net/~dockbar-main/+archive/ppa
