Custom packages

PPA description

Customized packages for the Unity8 Desktop Session. Just add this PPA to your sources and install the unity8-desktop-session-mir package (from the Trusty archives). A new session type will be available from the LightDM login screen.

NOTE: You may need to undo the damage done when libhybris was installed by running the command

  sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_egl_conf

and choosing the non-libhybris alternative. The symptom that you need to do this is an error in /var/log/lightdm/unity-system-compositor.log that says something like this:

undefined symbol: _glapi_tls_Dispatch
