Ultimate Edition 2.2 Theme Final

GTK2 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net

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 am sorry that you encourage this behavior, are you pleased that someone takes your wallpapers, puts on some meaningless characters and then announces and posts to the world as his creation?

I like your wallpapers, but now I really doubt that you did the same tricks.

Piss on the wallpaper it will be replaced before final, watch... If the wallpaper gets replaced that means GDM, and USplash also replaced. I wrote software that guarantees this ;) My graphical talents are "par" not over the top, please wait.

I unpack the deb and find there seems to be nothing originally created, the gtk theme is HP-Glassybleu, cursor theme is Silver-XCursors-3D, icon theme is probably combination of Hydroxygen and Meliae...

I don't check others in the deb, because I don't like to be fooled with this 'NEW' theme.

Oh my, do we not have a large mouth? How many themes are on this entire website that are original? Well I will now take some credit, the wallpaper I created usplash & GDM.

Mr smartman, postinst, postrm & prerm please (wonder who wrote that). I will not get into. What I will get into it is progression, not recession. It is people like you that wants linux to take a step back. Please be glad that is all I said, do I have time to write all? I write a distro please think next time you post.

You can redistribute and/or modify things that are published under GNU GPL, but that doesn't mean you can announce those are your original creations.

If you ever clearly made a statement in your description that what you had collected in your theme, I would not criticized you, because modification and redistribution are allowed, but unfortunately, you ignored this statement on purpose or not, so I am sorry to say that is kind of steal.

Works great in Ubuntu 8.10 with either default Gnome, or XFCE4. Did have to make a minor tweak as the Control Center background was a light blue shade making the text almost unreadable. Other than that it is flawless.

Thanks for the flawless, I had one of my beta testers try it in hardy, I seen things in hardy that are not there yet in Intrepid. What is the road to Jaunty going to be like for me?

This is really good. I applied it to 8.10 and its working really well.

1 issue with the Emerald theme: I cannot reduce the sizes of the window borders less than 6 without breaking the look of the window decorations.
Also, there are no icons for the other buttons (Ie. Shade, On all desktops, etc).

How many theme packs include emerald ;) Yes, I also wrote the emerald portion of it ;) Please kick back and let me truly finish. We have a long road ahead, note proposed.

If this is work in progress I'm even more impressed. Looks incredibly polished. First dark theme I'm using that doesn't make a mess of Firefox.
Wallpaper fugly indeed. I'm using an orbit view of Earth wallpaper which works really well.

Only glitch so far; compiz settings are barely readible in the CompizConfig Settings Manager.

Great work so far. Thanks!

Yeah, the wallpaper does look rather ugly; but the GTK theme and icons look great! If you want you can package some of my wallpapers with the theme.

Here are some I recommend:

I agree with you brother and you do have talent, however I have a graphical artist I count on... it is coming. Things you can not as well me see yet, I promised them a week, to them & my forum. Please look at it as I do.

I will allow things to change, I just I will it all just "an adjustment factor".

Think cowboy... & I have not seen his work. Ultimately I will make the decision, maybe yours kick back and relax.

The main content of this "pack" seems to be the the standard hp mini netbook theme.
Which is protected by copyright.

This is the HP-theme! So at least aknowledge it that you have used it as the basis of your theme. Just changing some minor things doesn't give you the right to take full credit!!!

Do you mean this one? http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/blue+glass+HP+theme+?content=101266 Where it started also GPL, Yes I read the license in the package. There are 0 ~ files in my package ;) I would nothing more then to give all credit, but it is next to impossible as I adjust it.

Yup. It is. The only difference between this and the standard HP netbook theme is the icons, which I believe are just slightly modified from Hydroxygen, and for which no (visible) credit is given. Also, the sounds are from other sound sets on this site (cant recall which ones in particular at the moment, but I'm sure of it).

Since there's no readme file or anything, you really should put the credit on this page. This is a blatant copyright violation, and a pretty big "f*ck you" to everyone who put their time and hard work into making these themes. If you have any conscience you'll give them credit.
