Now, we must convince Congress to stop the FCC. Can you display an alert?

How you can install the Ubuntu Unity desktop on your Linux Mint 15 system.

use this command to install the Lightdm login manager; the Unity desktop and other assorted paraphernalia that goes with it. I just did this today with Mint and this worked. You need the ubuntu-desktop package installed to make use of this desktop though. But this does work. Linux Mint 15 uses the Ubuntu 13.04 packages; so you will not get the absolute latest version. Linux Mint 16 will though.

sudo apt-get install unity unity-scope-askubuntu unity-lens-applications unity-webapps-bbcnews unity-greeter ubuntu-desktop

If you do not get all of the functionality of the Unity desktop installed, then try this command.

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends indicator-applet-complete

I found this fix on this forum posting: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=144779.
