Does anybody know how to get Unity to work on ay Linux compatible desktop?

Unity requires 3D capable graphics hardware (whatever that is).  If
your hardware does not provide this then install unity-2d.
sudo apt-get install unity-2d

Hopefully eventually the system will automatically fall back to the 2d
version if the hardware requires it.
