Just download and run. in the bios it is already running, and it will come up on my desktop but when i do "locate -i 'lightdm' -i 'unity' " i dont have anything g0tcha, in the bios then grub will be there, not in the MBR. also, what is the command to turn unity off? i just need the command to turn off unity ok let me try rebooting and it doesnt appear to be in rc ps -aux | grep unity shows nothing june, ps auxf | grep -i unity i was thinking maybe lightdm would be in there as well ps auxf | grep unity that outputs nothing june, ps auxf | grep -i lightdm ok june, is this a desktop or server? desktop it was installing nvidia drivers so it may be that its still running cool, you can use the broken lightdm gui then, do you see it running? nope i can login via terminal just fine june, update and upgrade are running. this is a clean install june, I'm using a dektop I can't remeber, you have to make sure the unity desktop is running on a live desktop from a iso before I know, I'm not assuming anything.
