Ultimate Edition 2.2 Theme Final

GTK2 Themes

Description:

Before reading any further please read the changelog.

This theme is approaching completion, it now includes a Usplash x86 & 64 bit as of current. Cowboy created the wallpaper & I created GDM & usplash using software I have written.

It has been tested in Intrepid Ibex as well as Jaunty and works as expected (please wait for final as far as usplash). I see no reason that it should not work in Debian the same (try at your own risk). It has also been tested with lintian and is error free (autoset will complain because I have 64 & 32 bit binaries in a single deb does not mean squat postinst handles it).

This theme pack when installed will now fully restore your settings if un-installed. Sound, background etc. Please report any discrepancy. I now feel is not going to happen even if you un-install. I earned my name ;)

On to the goodies.

Entire theme pack "currently" includes:

1 GDM Login
1 GTK theme
1 Emerald theme
1 Metacity theme
1 Sound scheme
1 Font
1 Icon set
1 Cursor set
1 Compiz fusion splash
1 Grub splash
1 Firefox theme (To make firefox work with darker gtk's)

Instructions
=======
Appearance: System >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Ultimate Edition 2.2.
GDM: System >> Administration >> Login >> Ultimate Edition 2.2
Sound scheme: System >> Preferences >> Sound select "Sound" tab >> Ultimate Edition 2.2 or customize to your liking.

Hate it? sudo apt-get remove --purge ultimate-edition-theme-2.2

Currently everything is subject to change, your opinion counts please post your thoughts. You are making Ultimate Edition 2.2 at least graphically. I am trying to keep my numbers down, I have not announced it on any site I own, minus admin section of my forum, all people I want to be a part. Sad, admin did not know anymore then you. Why did I do that?

Credits: Cowboy deservers #1 here a grahical genius. The Icon set a mod of deviantdark's icons (hydroxygen), I hate to change credits & it seems constant, I give myself 0 credit here... I will be adding others as I continue & make it final, all are modified currently & are GPL. If I see creative commons or better, I just move on. I do not have the time to start from scratch ;) Those that "know" me either love me or hate me.

Enjoy!!! I have started a credits on my forum please click the homepage link at the top of the page.

03/12/09: Current status: Proposed

Initial public release
Added instructions for the theme
Added 2 mirrors
Started credits, what do you bet Cowboy enters the picture?

I promised not a week before I enter my own forum, where is this package going?

Please think of it this way... Final & polished "NO", I am eventually going to provide it it 2 forms, one that does all as one of my beta testers requested.

03/18/09: Added auto-set version (this will set your wallpaper theme & gdm for you), please do not use it unless you know how to change it back. Takes over on next boot. No major change yet. Please do not download it unless you want to test it / report bugs.

03/21/08: Set Package as Alpha..

Added 3 servers, I have set the package as alpha (auto set version exclusive), final far from it. Sound scheme does not currently work totally about 50%. GDM is better then any GDM released to date & if you remove the package will restore it for you. Still far from final. This release includes a new GDM as well as USplash x86 / x64. Done? Far from it.

03/26/09: (autotest exclusive) I have striped all mirrors from the list. We are getting close to a final release minus the "overall" theme (GDM, usplash & wallpaper). I created a new wallpaper in gimp that does rock in gimp. Ol lady does not think so, but hates dark themes. Please do not see this as final, but see it this way when you remove it it will restore everything & done better then ubuntu has done ;)

Before the flamewar starts don't & I will not say why. Tell them to download & learn. I use an image of Ubuntu raw in KVM allows me to test things in seconds w/o re-installing ;)

Sound issues are after that. Yes it will remove and restore your sounds settings however login / out are there, but not working yet. Any feedback is now appreciated. Once the wallpaper goes hot takes me a day and usplash / gdm happens, once you see screenshot above change for the GDM, you will understand & not the one that has been sitting there for a week or better. See there are benefits of being a tester. First time I ask for testing & do not care if you are a newbie ;)

Should I call it beta? I have been told what I perceive as Alpha is a "final product", I am telling you far from it. They think I am a perfectionist ;) Iregardlessly, when I drop final it is just that, please catch any problems we have.

03/30/09: Major update, please stand by for details... This website will not allow me to update screenshots above, I will open a thread on my forum, please stand by. Please view http://forumubuntusoftware.info/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1670 or click on the homepage link at the top. Final? Really close ;)

06/04/09: Sorry for the servers being down first off & sorry for the delay, read on my forum why. Enjoy Close to final. To my knowledge a more complete theme pack does not exist even on the net. I know where the bad came from being down for 2 months. You guys best give me some good to make up for it, about 10,000 downloads recorded here going to be hard to do ;)

06/10/09: Added x64 support Usplash should work no matter which architecture x86/64 bit. Added Grub splash (not on by default). Fixed font issue Liberation is now the default font. Changed the Emerald theme. I have tested the theme with a "raw copy" of Ubunty Jaunty overall pretty much bulletproof to see it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlW1HlwBnL0

06/20/09: Set it as final added individual packages for GDM etc. Added a mirror for the deb package.

I've never been a fan of dark themes but I can't help but make an exception for this. Great work! Extra kudos for taking the time to package it up to a .deb!!

I love the theme immensely. The only thing I would ask be changed is that in the Open Office Apps, the text in the menu list is black and the icons on the toolbar are black. Can you change the color or make the text and icons less shadowed. Otherwise, Kudos to the theme. Damn great job hoss.

That is "open office" not an error in the theme package, sorry for the delay please read initial post.

My question now is, you say this is a Open Office thing, but it happens in many other apps as well. Your 2.1 theme makes the text a yellow color, but 2.2 the text is black. If no one else is having these problems then it must be my system. I am a newbie and just trying to make my distro cool.

One other thing. Have a look at the option under tools. You can't read the text to see what option you are changing. Text is black on black background. Open Office is the only program I found this to happen this way. Thank you in advance.

I'm sorry, it's the text on the buttons and the icons. Sorry for the confusion. Can you make the text on the buttons visible.

I love this theme, there's just one thing I'd like to know how to change. You know when the window is unfocused, the window border is slightly transparent? How can I make it slightly transparent all the time? Wether it's focused or not?

While I don't approve of you not crediting most of the artists for the work of theirs that you are using, I do appreciate your packaging skills. The package works quite well on Hardy, Intrepid, and Jaunty beta. I just wish you would state somewhere the sources from which you took the art. So please, if you're reading this, just make a lot of people happier by adding a full credits section.

Again, I'm not bashing you for using other people's work, I just wish you would give them credit.

Just thought you might care about my opinion.

Also, if you want to include my reflection pack in UE, you're more than welcome to. It might add something else over other distributions to have a window reflection by default.

Just my $0.02

Hello, I already Installed Ultimate Edition 2.2 Theme Pack in Linux Mint 6.0 Gnome and everything works great, except for OpenOffice 3.0 where Icons are not visible. Is it possible to fix this....and how?

Thank you!

Well chunchengch, here we go again, I hope you learn something as I continue. Should I give credit to Hydroxogen? That is where I modified my icon set from (should I call it my icon set?), did he create just one icon? I have & I understand GPL better then you do, believe that, I am also the creator of Ultamatix, do I mind if you modify it? I promise you I will lose no sleep over it, and I am a programmer not a graphical artist. Everything I make I give away totally free and yes this means I absorb bandwidth costs so you can have it. Do you know what just 1 site 10 TB not GB of bandwidth would cost you, I have done that times 7. 0 donations. I am not here to make money only to make the *nix community better. Funny you want to slam me & I have said I am not done.

Once I thought was Tarantino that said this sentence: "The bigger artist is somebody who steal from other artists, not somebody who take an inspiration!"
Then I discovered that he stolen this sentence to Pablo Picasso..

I don't want to judge anybody in my life, it's not my work.. all the times, like this one, too, I feel like I don't have all the elements to make a good judgment..

Ok.
For the rest: I've tested this GTK theme in my xfce installed on a slackware 12.2..
The themes works very well without having installed neither emerald neither beryl or similar accessories..
I don't know if this is important in your opinion or if this care you.. but I've just a little question: I like very very much this theme (and don't care a lot about the originality) except for a little thing: the menu entries are a little too big in my opinion.. Having a 1024x768 desktop definition, my xfce menu takes almost all my notebook screen!
Is this only for me or it's a property of the theme? And is there a simple (!!) way to change the size of the menus? Don't know, maybe all depends by the size of the fonts?

Very nice work, in my opinion.. Go on.. and excuse me if my english is not very good..

I like to clear my position on this subject. The work that his has done in trying to set up everything together not matter if it is someone origination under gpl is excellent. That is all I have said here. I do not get into judging who, what, when or other. Yes to take the time to explain all that he has explain here is enough for making easyer for someone to understand what it is he is trying to do. If the person is not doing the right or wrong thing he will have to deal with his own consciousness about that. It is not for me to judge him for anything else. I am not into investigations.

I could be wrong but I won't know who is original in their work or not and more when there is so much much art in a place like this.

I did not or do not try to put anyone down here. All I did is to encourage the person for his explanations here and the setup that he has trying to put together as we can see he took his time to explain fully.

Anyone doubting my art is free to do so and investigate it is fully free to do so also.

We are all trying here to give the best way possible a free art. To me, there is not gaining or loosing all that it is is offering and that I respect profoundly. But again I do not judge people right or wrong actions. I am not here to do so.

With all respect towards everyone and I am sorry that maybe I have cause discomfort on anyone.

Best Wishes to all!
