Ubuntu 18.04 + Unity 8

I got tired of GNOME’s workflow and decided replace it in favor of Ubuntu’s former Unity desktop.

I kinda got fed up with the poorly utilized top bar area of GNOME and decided to remove it in favor of Ubuntu’s former Unity desktop. To get it work properly I had to make sure GNOME was completely removed removed from my system as they share some settings. I also installed the  proper Ambiance and Radiance themes were installed. I also reinstalled lightdm and removed gdm for my log in screen.

If you want a good take on why Unity just works check out Infinitely Galactic’s Vlog post on the subject.
