Hello Folks still following this ITP.
I spent some time trying to see if I could get the Unity shell packaged
for Debian. I started with taking the latest build from precise-updates
and see what needs change and what is missing....
Here's what I have:
rrs at champaran:~/Community/Packaging/Unity$ ls
bamf/ frame/ grail/
Lenses/ libunity-webapps/ unity/ x11proto-fixes/
compiz/ geis/ humanity-icon-theme/
libunity/ libxfixes/ unity-asset-pool/
dbus-test-runner/ glib2.0-2.32.3/ indicator-messages/
libunity-misc/ nux/ unity-greeter/
Many of it is already in Debian in sid and experimental. Where as some
others (icons etc) can always be addons.
Building the entire thing was a real PITA. The main reason being that
getting Unity for Debian would mean close co-ordination in between
dependent package teams and accommodating changes. For example, the
unity patch for chromium.
And this definitely cannot be done by a single person. So are people
interested and willing to take it further ???
I haven't done much than just try to get it build inside a
sid/experimental pbuilder instance, so all the big task of co-ordination
with other dependency teams is still pending...
Oh!! And yes, it also runs on my box.
