I was wondering if it was possible to install the pantheon desktop from elementary-os on a ubuntu 16.10 ?



To install Pantheon DE on 16.10, run following command in order:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/os-patches
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/testing
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install elementary-theme elementary-icon-theme elementary-default-settings elementary-desktop

Various user reportedly has encountered couple of bugs, since this procedure will install the unstable version. Other than that, it's completely usable and working fine.

  • thanks for you response but this is not working on 16.10 – digrouz Jan 13 '17 at 9:46

edit the source list of elementary os ppa:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elementary-os-ubuntu-daily-zesty.list

after that change "zesty" or name of version of ubuntu with "xenial" like as:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/daily/ubuntu xenial main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/daily/ubuntu xenial main


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pantheon-files
