Any plans to add resurrected Unity (DE aka Graphical Shell) as an option along with Gnome and KDE?

There are some PRs linked in this issue: RFP: Lomiri (Unity8) desktop environment · Issue #99090 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub

I think this refers to Unity7 (https://unityd.org/) instead of Unity8/Lomiri (https://lomiri.com/)? They’re different projects.


Unity7 doesn’t have an open RFP yet, afaict.

Yep. I’m about refreshed Unity7. It’s actually better for typists then GNOME or KDE(IMHO), so it would be a hit if it would be adopted for NixOS…

Hi! Would it be possible to run Lomiri as desktop on Nixos at the moment? Thanks

Not at the moment, I’d say we’re about 3-4 5-6? dependencies away from a barebones Lomiri shell & module on master though. Just need to annoy some ppl for reviews.

Progress on Lomiri/UBports related packaging is being tracked in:
