Lightdm is much better in my opinion. Anyway, when it will be released?.

Another vote for lightdm.

I have got the ISO ready :slight_smile: Will be sharing it. About GDM3, lightdm wasn’t functioning properly

Release Notes

  • It has been upgraded with the latest versions of Firefox, LibreOffice and the latest Kernel package in the repos.
  • Has the unofficial PPAs removed.
  • Bug fixes.
  • There has been a major change to GDM3, so lightdm has been removed completely. However, you can install it if you want to.

Thank you for all your support!

Looking excellent.

Looks like the Yaru theme is missing some key icons Unity uses on its top panel widget (network, wifi etc) and is defaulting to the ugly defaults. Is there any way to get around this? The older ubuntu stock icons had some good ones. Maybe locate these and try to upstream into Yaru?

:+1: I was focusing on getting the old experience back, so didn’t include the new stuff. Your feedback noted for the next build :slight_smile: The current build is using Ambiance, not Yaru, but you can install it. I’ll add it in the next build.

Thank you @rs2009 for your commitment. I really like unity! Please add the new theme before advertising this remix. If we get this thing right we could really resurrect Unity and hopefully attract new developers. We need them to give this project a stable future!

Sure @neffscape, I have it as a top priority in my to-do list

@rs2009 I just tested your iso on my laptop (it works almost flawlessy… I will report a couple of minor bugs just to polish the final release). I also tried the Yarunity theme from Gnome-look.org. It’s almost perfect: we only need some tweaks for the indicator icons in the top panel. I wish we could use Humanity indicators in Yarunity theme. Is anyone able to change that?

Yes I noticed that also. Yaru is missing those icons and defaults are being shown. I’m certain the icons are there in a different name. Perhaps we could locate those icons and get Yaru to fix them upstream?

Or maybe the indicators themselves could be patched to reference other icons that would load in Yaru and other themes.

Wow, It looks great!

Here’s the slightly updated version of the icon I made earlier.

It’s not yet finalized to be a system icon, but can be used for anything and any purpose.

Hi, just want to share a really nice theme I’m using for Unity right now: A modified Mint Y theme with Flatabulous title buttons. Icons are from Ultra-Flat-Icons.

This is the dark version:

I really loved the Flatabulous theme back in 14.04 and 16.04, but it’s not maintained anymore, so I tried to replicate it using the Mint Y theme from Linux Mint. It turned out quite nice, I guess.
