Hi, I was surfing around when I found there was unity developed for fedora 17, Is there any chance we can get unity for newer versions of unity on newer versions of fedora?!? I really like that desktop environment. I know it's a little out of the box, but wanted to be sure that there is no way for having unity on fedora, so give up and use existing environment we have.

As far as I know, Ubuntu people are heavily modifying existing gtk+ and other gnome packages to make unity work. If you are willing to port this work to Fedora and take some work, do it. If not, you might have more luck to find someone who does. I didn't find anyone on copr, I don't think you'll have more luck.

Ubuntu/Canonical may prevent you from shipping Unity though, through their controversial CLA (Contributors License Agreement).

Sincerely I don't like Unity but actually exist advanced efforts in Arch Linux; to porting Unity; and it can run in Fedora; I haven't time to make "rpms" for this work; maybe you can make it. Isn't complicated... you can guide in all PKGBUILD.

Attention: Installing Unity means that many official packages will be replaced with patched Ubuntu versions...
