1. Install

Run this command on your Terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-unity-desktop

Installation process

2. Accept Display Manager

Choose the second one, in this case, " lightdm ". This is the login screen you were familiar with on 16.04 LTS backwards. If you choose "gdm", that is OK, but it is not familiar to Unity 7 users.

Choose LightDM

3. Reboot & Login

After finishing all download and configuration, now restart your computer. When you face the login screen, first select Gear Icon and select " Unity " instead of "Ubuntu", then login like usual.

The Result

You get a full Unity 7 desktop on 18.04 like what you have on 16.04 LTS or 12.04 LTS. Try the HUD, try the global menu, try the vertical panel, and try the dash. They are all functional like before. Happy working!

Have your Unity desktop again!
