ubuntulooks?

Asked by vexorian on 2009-04-27

I upgraded to jaunty to find that ubuntulooks not only is not the default anymore but for some reason human-theme forces you to uninstall it.

Is forced incompatibility this a bug? any of my favorite gtk themes used it and murrine was never really a favorite of mine, I am finding it hard to get used to other gtk themes... I understand the decision to use murrine, but why forbid to use ubuntulooks ?

ubuntulooks is not forbidden, it has been replaced by the human-theme.

This forum thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=939249) suggests that it is no longer maintained. Maybe that's why.

Anyway, the description of the "gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks" package says:

"Clearlooks is a modern-looking engine for GTK+, based on Bluecurve. It
features elements of various popular themes, blended together to produce a
theme that is easy on the eyes and visually pleasing."

So it is a blend of various themes, with clearlooks being the engine. Why not use clearlooks instead? I love it myself. It is already available in ubuntu:
Right Click on Desktop > Change Desktop Background > Themes > Human - Clearlooks

Hope that helps.

Can you help with this problem?
