How to install the UKUI Desktop Environment on Ubuntu

Today we look at how to install the UKUI Desktop Environment on Ubuntu.  When I made my videos about it, it was just when the UKUI Desktop Environment was released and there was a PPA that allowed a person to install it on Ubuntu.  When I wrote this blog post, I released that the PPA is no longer working but it is still possible to install the environment on Ubuntu, as it just became easier!

I doubt it is going to work on Ubuntu 16.04 but it does work on Ubuntu 18.04, I tried it.

All you need to do is copy/paste the following command into your terminal and install the packages, similar to what you see in the video.  If you would like me to make a new video, please let me know!

Commands Used:
sudo apt install ukui-session-manager ukui-desktop-environment
