Description

Hi,

After successfully installing unity, it is not selectable in the greeter either in GDM or in LightDM. @rakyi has also experiencd this issue.

But I could run unity from terminal by typing the following command,

$ unity

It has been caused by a bug in ubuntu-session package in Trisquel repository.

The content of ubuntu-session in Trisquel 7 (ubuntu-session_3.9.90-0ubuntu12+7.0trisquel2_all):

10 directories, 10 files

An can be seen above, the gnome-session, lightdm, and xsessions directories are missing in the modified package in Trisquel.

WORKAROUND:
You can manually add Unity to the greeter by running the attached file using sudo.
