    To install and test the Ubuntu Touch Core Apps on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn

    First off you must add two PPAs. Open a terminal window (ctrl + alt + t) and enter the following:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-touch-coreapps-drivers/daily

    sudo apt-get update

    From here you have two options.

    1. Install the entire touch-coreapps package.
    2. Install certain applications only.

    To install the entire pack:

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk touch-coreapps

    To install only certain applications, replace touch-coreapps with the name of the application(s) you wish to install.

    e.g. 1 sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk ubuntu-calculator-app

    e.g. 2 sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk calendar-app music-app sudoku-app

    A list of the available applications:

    • ubuntu-calculator-app
    • calendar-app
    • ubuntu-clock-app
    • ubuntu-weather-app
