The stable version of Unity 7.6 has been released! :tada: It’s the first major release of Unity since 16.10 and includes support for changing the accent color :art: and theme from Unity Control Center and a redesigned UI :computer: besides other improvements. It’s been released as an update for all existing Ubuntu Unity 22.04 users.




Great job, thank you for your effort! :grinning:

Will it be kept “Ubuntu only” or has any work started on porting it to other distros.
Also will it be up-streamed to ubuntu?

Thank you so much. Love how you manage to stay true to the classic looks while modernizing carefully.



Ubuntu Unity desktop back from the dead after several years’ hiatus, Thanks to Linux wunderkind Rudra Saraswat, not Canonical, this time


The Fedora port for Unity 7.6 is being worked on by gnat, and I’m doing it myself for Arch.

Any idea why the Firefox launcher keeps on disappearing every time it updates?

Hello @rs2009, thank you very much for your contribution. I have found some more bugs to work on, mainly:

  1. calendar sync not working well, when enabled indicator-datetime blinks.
  2. bluetooth not working as it should, it kinda connects, but sharing files is impossible, for this to work you have to use Blueman
    Also another question: Can this project be pushed to upstream of the official Unity PPA, why not? Or can some of the maintainer bug fixes be pushed?
