Add the Unity8 repository to

Trust my GPG key that's used to sign packages:
sudo pacman-key --recv-keys --keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net F3A621DFD4328CC4 sudo pacman-key --lsign-key F3A621DFD4328CC4
Refresh the local pacman database:
sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S unity8-git
Skip the greeter (not used on desktops, broken):
mkdir -p $HOME/.config/ubuntu-system-settings touch $HOME/.config/ubuntu-system-settings/wizard-has-run
Launch Unity8 with (either from a tty or from a terminal):
MIR_SERVER_CURSOR=null QT_QPA_PLATFORM=mirserver unity8
It will not work on nvidia proprietary, it's a limitation of Mir.
As it's an alpha build, it takes around 5-10 minutes to start.
Building instructions were moved to a separate document.
Please follow the contributing guide.
