    Hi Folks,

    ******
    SOLVED BELOW ** Please see alternate thread linked by diegomendes below.
    If you experience this problem, the thread linked worked perfectly for me.
    ******

    Here is the scoop:
    I'm on Linux Mint 18.1
    uname -rv
    4.4.0-59-generic #80-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 6 17:47:47 UTC 2017

    I mistakenly installed the older 5.0 release from the forum thread and, as expected, got the "Service not available" error.

    I then uninstalled, and installed unity-editor-amd64-6.6.0xb3Linux.deb

    The install works fine, then when I run I get this:
    1) The blue Unity spash screen pops up
    2) A black "gettingStarted" window pops up and hangs with nothing in the window.
    3) When I close that window, a small dialog titled "Hold On" pops up creating directories in my user directory then Unity exits.
    4) Now when I start the Unity spash pops up, then an empty black "recent" window pops up and hangs.

    I suspect I just have some files hanging around from the first install. I have tried to uninstall, then delete everything I can find related to Unity (from .cache, .config, ProjectSettings, Library, Assets), but the best I can do is get it back to the "gettingStarted" hang. Apparently something is still sticking around that I don't know about, or something else is wrong.

    I think I just need help knowing where to look for every possible thing I need to delete (assuming that is in fact the problem).

    Thanks in advance for the help
