Arch-Unity: The Bad News

I installed Arch with the Unity desktop yesterday. Everything works great…however…

The unity-meta package has a few apps I want to remove but can’t without breaking the system. I don’t use Firefox, Libreoffice, and a few other small tools in the “Depends On” list.

So, I can’t call this a “keeper”, but I still have UU 22.10.

I have to give @ruds two thumbs up for porting Unity to Arch.
