I'm trying to test Unity in 12.04 (Development branch).
I followed these steps appearing in
Building in your home directory
Sometimes for testing reasons it's useful to build Unity and nux in your
home directory so you can try to see if something is fixed in trunk
without mucking around with packages and/or PPAs. I asked Jason Smith
(Unity Dev) how he builds Unity and he explained his method to me:
Ensure you have all the build dependencies from this answer.
First make a directory in your home called "staging", this is where
we'll build Unity. Create a little script that will prepare the build
environment, replace the home directory with your own:
I call this unity.sh and I run it every time I want to build Unity.
So basically chmod +x unity.sh and then ./unity.sh when you want to
bzr branch lp:nux
bzr branch lp:unity
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/jorge/staging/
NOTE: This builds nux and unity in your home directory, there's no need
for sudo here or anything like that.
Logging out and back in will run this version of Unity/nux
automatically since it was built in ~/.compiz
To revert to the normal packages just log out, delete ~/.compiz and
log back in.
But, when I log back in, Unity won't show.
What am I missing ?
Thank you for your help.
Have a nice day.
