Re: elementary and Ubuntu 13.04


Quick answer: you can't.

Long answer: even though most of our applications work on Ubuntu 13.04 and
the likes, the Desktop Environment (Pantheon) as a whole doesn't for too
many reasons for me to list. As soon as we release Luna, we will begin work
on the next version of elementary OS and we will use a newer version of
Ubuntu as a base so you'll have to wait until then to be able to use
Pantheon 'decently' on these newer versions of Ubuntu. I'm very sorry but
you'll have to be patient.

Note, though, that it might be impossible to tweak a lot of things and make
it look very very alike the Pantheon experience on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, but
it's probably quite complicated and I don't know how.
