Good point, I didn't realize the issue of the manual installation. One
option is start a shell, and install it manually. Although of course,
this is not really user-friendly.

Yes, Unity2D doesn't use Compiz, and AFAIK, it doesn't have a built-in
magnification feature.

Thanks for the clarification.
