** Description changed:
UKUI is a lightweight desktop environment for Ubuntu Kylin. It provides a

(2) UKUI has made many many code and configuration changes from MATE. Those
changes are not consistent with the design of MATE.
(3) The further goal of UKUI is to simplify and unify the user interfaces and
desktop development interface libraries which may make the desktop more

Until now, we have rewrote the main user interfaces and changed the
conflicts between UKUI and MATE. We have checked that UKUI can coexist
with mate and has no effects on other packages.
