Unity 2D’s main goal is to provide a Unity environment on hardware platforms that don’t support Unity’s Open GL requirements. Many ARM platforms fall into this category, so Unity 2D expands Unity’s goodness to a whole new set of platforms.

The software is implemented using Qt/QML for the UI portions of Unity, while utilizing the existing Unity core components, like indicators, bamf, dee, uTouch and places.

    It does not work on Ubuntu 11.04 (x86). If i try to install I get an error saying that is impossible to find unity-qt-default-settings. What is wrong with that PPA?

    The command I had to use was:

    “sudo apt-get install unity-2d-default-settings”

    “unity-qt-default-settings” is not in the repo…
