It isn't in the ubuntu/mint repos and there's no .deb file or ppa. Build and compile only. See: https://github.com/nullgemm/ly

I wouldn't touch something like this personally, if no one has bothered to package this for debian/ubuntu/mint how good could it be? Plus it's just a DM.

If you must, do a Timeshift backup first. This sort of install method is a good way to break the OS.
