How to try Unity8 (xenial) in "live session mode"

1 - Open a terminal in your ubuntu "live session"
ctrl + alt + t

2 - Define password for "ubuntu" user (we need a password to logout, and login again in "live session" mode).


3 - Add repository multiverse and install the package unity8-desktop-session-mir

sudo apt-add-repository multiverse

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

sudo apt-get install unity8-desktop-session-mir

4 - Logout

5 - At login screen choose "unity8" session and login as user "ubuntu", with password defined in the step 2.

If doesn't work, press...
ctrl + alt + F1

Login in terminal as user "ubuntu"

sudo service lightdm restart

At login screen choose "ubuntu" user, and enter password define in the step 2.

Have fun :)
