Description:

Ultimate Edition 4.0 Theme is perhaps the finest theme I have ever set eyes on. It was originally based on killhellokitty's Delorian Dark theme. I have ran the theme though an app I wrote called repairtheme and fixed the very few theme errors this theme had, killhellokitty is an excellent GTK artist. A true Picasso & has wonderful coding comments in his theme.

This theme for a lack of a better word is a perfect dark theme, no white on white. Boxes that are shaded out have like caution tape lines through them in grey, his attention to detail is fanatical.

Ultimate Edition 4.0 Theme Pack Contents:

1 GTK2 / GTK3 Theme
1 Metacity Theme
19,000+ Icons 16X16, 22, 24, 32, 64, 96, 128 & 256
1 Wallpaper I made with Gimp 2.9.2
1 Cursor set
1 Compiz splash
1 Compiz skydome

Is anybody able to download the theme or the source? It redirects me to the blank page with error msg "The download path is invalid". Thanks

I most likely am posting faster than the serviers are uploading, but, I popped it on enlightenment. Looks fantastic! I'm using the beta firefox so chances are something got missed. I put Dark Carbon theme on which matches it. There were no icons in the download. And when I went to UE website there was no mention of the theme yet, like I said, I'm probably just jumping ahead. As I was using a transparent theme for Enlightenment 2.0 Luna, it was the same in the menu, (semi transparent (NICE!). Backdraw was it made the icons that I do have (tried them all) look odd as they had a dark square boarder around them all. Didn't look bad just odd. When I get the proper icons I'm sure it will tip the trip over to amazing!

The Icon theme hosted on http://themelinux.com/ under Ultimate Edition Themes link at the top has 19,000+ icons and almost 500 mimes in it. The most complete icon set on the planet as far as I have seen. Cursors, Sound theme etc. are all there.

Firefox in the Operating System I build has an integraded css file in the /etc/skel/.mozilla/chrome/ folder to make it also fully match.

I don't know if you know what repostorm is, but it also did it's share of work on it. http://www.repostorm.com/

I don't want to be a party breaker, but I installed UE4 icon theme, and I have generic icons for LibreOffice, Ubuntu Software Center, Diodon, Ubuntu One... and no icon at all for the log-out/settings menu in Unity.

Otherwise, it IS a nice theme.

The Icon set is written for Ultimate Edition, however should work in Debian, Ubuntu etc. I would appriciate it if you could point me to an icon set that has more then 19,000 icons in it. Actually I intend to replace the software center Icon with a UE Icon in the pack. I started reverse engineering Ubuntu Software Center in Ultimate Edition 3.8 http://ultimateedition.info/ultimate-edition/ultimate-edition-3-8/

Look at the second row second column screenshot take note that the software center also sports the dark theme and the name on the titlebar at the top of the application.

It may have a huge number of icons all together, but it still lacks icons for LibreOffice apps, to give an example. The fact that it doesn't have icons for the most common office suite on GNU/Linux desktops today makes the theme incomplete in my opinion.
You say it was meant for UE, anyway. Does it mean UE users don't use LO very much?

But as I already said I DO like how the theme looks like, both gtk and icons. It is just that the icon theme doesn't really look complete on my desktop. And I am not talking about some weird unknown apps here...

Enlightenmentos has a few changes that don't match most of the other *buntu remixes. Snagged the icons (104mb!) and yanked the css out of the folder. Soon as I figure out what is going on with the menu (slingshot) it will be premium!

Nice work but am also interested in the repairtheme software. Is there a non-Ubuntu version available?

The tool is written in bash. The one I have on my hard disk is far more advanced, but you can get the just of it on our forums: http://forumubuntusoftware.info/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=9394

As far as I can see this theme is the only one (out of hundred or so I've seen to date) that's closest to perfection indeed!

The only 2 minor areas I could find some room for improvement are:
1) Chrome/ium tab bar bgcolor could perhaps be a little closer to dark grey above and below it.
2) Synaptic packages marked for upgrade may perhaps look better with some other color combination than the present light grey fg on yellow bg.

Also, sometimes I personally feel I need a little bit more light in the main windows background, e.g. Nautilus, etc. and would very much appreciate if I could switch to a lighter version of this great theme.

I have set a second screenshot to show you how to enable GTK themes in Chromium. It is in Settings. I will use it and see if I can find flaw, if I do I will if possible write a css for chromium.

Thanks, it seems I haven't made myself clear enough: the point I was trying to make was the black stripe seen on your 2nd screenshot (chromium tab bar bgcolor), and I just thought that it might perhaps look better to have a little less contrast there by setting bgcolor a little closer to dark grey.

Hi, I would like to test your theme as it seems really what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, I'm on Manjaro and .deb are not working. Can you share the sources ? Thanks in advance.
