Description:

2 Themes (Carbon gold default), 2 Login (GDM's), 10 Wallpapers, 2 icons set, 1 Usplash (x86 and x64), Ultimate Edition Cursor set, and sound scheme used in Ultimate Edition 2.1.
.
For information please visit http://ultimateedition.info/.

KUDOS to MK64 for the theme and Cowboy for the wallpaper. I do want to take at least some credit, I built the deb, created the usplash, GDM using software I have written & offer openly to the world. Enuff of credits... Is it TUM that is coming? TheeMahn USplash Maker.

Same as above, corrected 1000's of errors (permission problems) to make it lintian / Debian compliant, fixed sound issues 16 bit v/s 32 bit, Ubuntu needs to wake up ;) There will be one more release before I set it as final. I have tested it in Intrepid as well as Jaunty and works flawlessly. Hardy or less will not work as far as USplash (I do intend to check lsbrelease and if hardy or less not set usplash, then will be final).

I have installed it into UE 2.1 with 0 errors / problems (fresh ibex) as well all debs I have written. Now 46MB btw. It is now a 100% theme across the board and will take over on next boot.

If you wish to change it... it can be done as any other use sum if you wish to change the usplash, appearance System >> Preferences >> Appearance. System >> Administration >> Login for GDM.

Don't like the sound scheme? System >> Preferences >> Sound select "Sound" tab customize or change to your liking.

Hate it? sudo apt-get remove --purge ultimate-edition-theme-2.1

Final: I have successfully Built Ultimate Edition 2.1 using this package, it is w/o a doubt flawless ;) Ultimate Edition 2.1 is uploading. I did not fix hardy less, I have much on my plate. I suggest not installing it on hardy or less. If you do in order to get your usplash back you will have to use sum or similar. You may get mad at me I added a mirror & does no justice. I own 7 sites & heavy traffic is all I see, enough that both of the 2 I offer are dropped (does not sound like "unlimited" to me.) Please be patient, I do not want the other 5 dropped. I am sorry, but you will have to wait, releasing the O/S has droped havoc. Mirrors or not. I will not get into tools "unreleased" at this point, I do also own Ultamatix.com. What you read there the tip of the iceburg compared to what I have. Software of the month when I started, what do I have now? I earned my name. Ulimited 400 people at a time & not good enuff. Sorry for it being shut down. I have a mirror 1 TB a day out? Am I missing something? He remains up...

12/11/10: Wow a blast to the past, yes I have updated the theme. Today I see Petabytes, not my favorite UE theme. A goodie, but wait until I bring our theme repo online. I updated download ink, I am trying to see if I can drag my numbers down. repo wise it will download the sound scheme etc, broken in small parts. Read more about that when I am ready on themelinux.com

Enjoy!!!

If it hasnt been mentioned enough in my previous large post. THIS THEME BREAKS FACE BROWSER. Meaning that no faces will be displayed if you have selected a GDM theme which displays faces. You have been warned!

See above post... Is there a possibility a bug report has been filed against this within Ubuntu? I will say no more.

This is more than just a GTK2+ theme, its a DEB package which changes your bootsplash, GDM, mouse cursor and many other things. The GTK2 theme is nice as a standalone and the icon theme is also good looking but I have a few issues with some of the other things. The bootsplash is not to my taste, its not terrible I just prefer the default ubuntu bootsplash. One MAJOR issue I found was that the 'face' of my main user account was removed from the face browser and i'm looking for ways to get it back, I didnt ask for any of the GDM stuff to be changes so i'm VERY disappointed. Another thing that really bothered me was the mouse cursor that the theme package sets everything to, its HUGE, I want a small cursor, not a small cursor with a large animated penguin attached to it, the theme sets this as the GDM default as well -- and the only way i've been able to change this back is to uninstall the theme completely. It was a huge waste of time.

Thanks brother, I agree with you totally. I am sure the rest of the whiners that say "oh no, how do I get my usplash back" etc. Will appreciate this http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ultimate+Edition+2.2+Proposed+Theme+Pack?content=100855.

This theme pack was written to be a total replacement of Ubuntu's theme, it does not erase their theme. The New one which is currently rough around the edges will do no such you will have to do all the work of changing the GDM etc.

It does piss me off when I put in the extra effort to make it as simple as possible for the end user.

I can't download it. If the download even starts at all it gets to 10-11% and stops. I've tried it on four browsers and two computers, both Ubuntu and Windows XP. Your file is broken.

I voted bad because of the font used in the "2.1" on the UE logo. I have NEVER liked Arial, not even back when I was a Windows user, before I switched to Linux. To my eyes, Arial is nothing but a cheap, shameless, and, pardon my French, but very p***-poor impersonation of Helvetica. In fact, Helvetica is my favorite font, which also, in Ubuntu, goes by names such as Nimbus Sans L, FreeSans, and possibly others. One of the reasons I switched to Linux was to get away from that ugly Arial font. Sheesh!

Do you see font anything in it? There is no font even included in the deb, unless you refer to gtk setting as such and if so not my doing ;)

Complain, I am sure tons try to do as I do? Why do I have ~75% of the populous?

I would like to complain as well, and I wrote it.

This is the thing I called it final, unmatched, but does not mean there are things I did not look over I see them, is it ok If I release another release?

No, not if I called it final. Enjoy your penguin :)

I don't know for 100% but youre package is the only one I installed today so far.

After a reboot I recognized that Files open with a Singleklick.

I never used to open Files with a Singleklick.

I wasted 10 Minutes to find the Option in the Settings of Nautilus...

BAD!

It is all pretty good, it is just that I prefer the default usplash image with the progress bar.
