[Bug 2024646] Re: Can not start unity in multipass vm : Error: unable to open display


I made it start Unity but many issues.

It seems It needs to be gnome-session --session=unity in the

But /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/unity.session only contains

[GNOME Session]

As a nothing really starts. unity-panel-service, unity7.service,
indicators etc.

1. I had to install kupfer in another session so that I can run terminal.
2. From terminal open ccsm, select unity-lowgfx profile and then compiz --replace gets me the unity dash.
3. However unity-control-center still missing other components except language and sharing ?
4. Also /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/unity/systemd-prestart-check for /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/ubuntu.session instead of unity.session. copying unity.session to ubuntu.session is needed here.

It seems we have few tweaks to make to our start up scripts so that it
can start unit properly without greeter.

@Rudra, What are modifications required from compiz side ? If they are
not related to compiz we can move the bug to respective package.
