Unity8 Desktop Preview in an LXC

PPA description

The packages in this PPA are for running the latest Unity8 desktop preview in a Utopic LXC on Trusty (14.04) systems. This allows logging in to the Unity8 preview session from LightDM using existing users on the system.

Once the package is installed, open a command terminal and enter:
$ sudo unity8-lxc-setup

This will download the latest Unity Desktop Next 14.10 Preview daily build, so it will take a while to setup.

* This is a preview and caution is advised when installing and running this *
