Trying to install UE theme pack in 10.04 Lucid Lynx
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. It's a Latitude D830. Everything's working well, which is why I decided to start customizing Ubuntu's look. My first stop was gnomelook.org and the other popular theme website for gnome(cant remember the name).
Anyway, I could not find what I wanted in a theme so I turned to Ultimate Edition's website. I followed their instructions to add their repo to sources.list. Then tried to install one of the theme packs, only to be told that 'usplash' could not be installed. WHAT!? So, I went ahead and googled the message and found out that 10.04 no longer uses 'usplash', it uses 'plymouth'.
UE's website claims that their themes can be installed in any version of the official Ubuntu releases. All I had to do was follow their instructions to add the repo to sources.list, which I did.
Can I force install a theme pack and bypass the 'usplash' error? maybe at the command line with apt?
Thoughts, comments, solutions are welcomed.
Update: found another site with the Ultimate Edition themes and direct download links. I installed the latest one(UE 2.6 theme pack), package installer didn't complain, installation was successful, but the theme is nowhere to be found on my system. LOL I even went into Synaptic, searched for the theme, it didn't come up.
