Mir related ppas

Mir staging ppa

A few weeks ago I was reminded of the “Mir staging ppa” and saw that, with the discontinuation of Unity8 it had fallen into disuse. After considering deleting it I eventually removed some Ubuntu series that are no longer supported and added MirAL trunk.

That means that for Xenial, Zesty and Artful you can get the latest development version of Mir and MirAL like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mir-team/staging
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

miral-release ppa

Now for the Internet of Things we are using UbuntuCore16 and snaps, but occasionally it is useful to have debs too. For Mir it is easy to use the underlying 16.04LTS (Xenial) archive, but MirAL isn’t in that archive.

To make up for that I’ve created a “miral-release” ppa containing the latest release of MirAL built for both Xenial and Zesty. Vis:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alan-griffiths/miral-release
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
