Ubuntu – Can you run unity8 as your desktop


I know you can run unity8 on your desktop, which will pop up a qml phone shell, but can you run it as your desktop? If so how do you achieve this, are there things not yet working on it?

My confusion here is whether unity8 has a desktop mode/tablet mode/tv mode along side the phone mode, or are these slated for a future release.

You need to install the unity8-desktop-session-mir package, and then should be able to log in to the Unity 8 session.
