Ubuntu: How to re-install Unity from PPA


I found some PPA that is patching Unity. (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/789979 )

I want to re-install unity from this PPA.

How can I do?

EDIT: The accepted answer below is to how to build your own version of Unity.. please carefully read all comments.


It does not appear there is a PPA for that code. You can either wait for the fix to be released, update your version of Ubuntu, or build from source.

From the README included in the code / patch


• Installation

Please see INSTALL or http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/InstallationGuideFromSource

The link then re-directs to an answer here:

How do I build Unity from source?

NOTE: If you build from source support will be limited, at best.
