  1. Just an update, Mac4Lin SVN has been updated with a new version of GTK Themes' and GTK Icons' directories. They are compatible with the latest version of GNOME and distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora etc. To download everything goto this page: http://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/mac4lin/ and on the botton click on "Download Tarball". If you however want to download specific components (like GTK_Theme etc.) then goto that directory and download the specific tarball. To install, you can follow any guide available online to install either the GTK theme or the GTK Icon theme. I am yet to make a formal release, but those who want to experiment with the latest version and file bugs are welcome to do so :)
  2. Mac4Lin is one of Lifehacker's Most Popular Linux Posts of 2009! It feels really good when you see your project figure on one of the Web's most popular tech websites! A big THANK YOU for all the support and appreciation :) The author writes: "Mac4Lin Gives Linux Desktops the Complete Mac Look It really, really does. If you don't mind the obvious break in your your free-as-in-speech fidelity, it's a pretty nice setup."

  8. Mac4Lin SVN was down for sometime. Its up again now. I've restructured the whole package and updated some files. Kindly sync your copy again :)
  9. A lot of people have been asking me how to use subversion. I've blogged about using subversion so that more people can pull down the Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 file and here. Head here: http://phoenix-ani.blogspot.com/2009/03/ho...nd-install.html Hope thats helpful :)
  10. I'm happy to inform you all that Mac4Lin now uses the SVN version control system. The latest version Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 is available there. Users may checkout to download the bleeding edge version. The required info is provided here: Subversion Server: https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net Path to Repository: /svnroot/mac4lin Access instructions: To access a Subversion repository, configure your Subversion client as follows: * Hostname: mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net * Port: 443 * Protocol: HTTPS * Repository Path: /svnroot/mac4lin For clients that use a URL string: https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mac4lin Mac4Lin v1.0RC2 has not been released and hence is not available on the Downloads page. It can only be obtained through SVN. Comments, suggestions, complaints are welcome as always
  11. The main Mac4Lin sourceforge.net has been updated with new themes. These themes fix the "Engine Error" in the newest version of GNOME. The pack includes an updated installation script which does not attempt to set the GDM theme autmatically. Also, a user contributed Mac4Lin uninstall script is now included in the pack.
  12. Mac4Lin is back! This is the version 1.0 Release Candidate. Some components are still under development. Currently the shell script is not able to set the GDM theme, cursor theme, sounds, emerald theme. They need to be manually set. Also components like Firefox3, Thunderbird theme, awn theme/plugins etc. are still under development. The Mozilla themes may not be stable. Hence use the non-core components of Mac4Lin at your own risk. Documentation is still in the pipeline. I decided to release the RC anyway so that patrons can start using it and update to the stable version when development is complete. Whats new: Mac4Lin v1.0 RC - 9th September, 2008 New! Automated Installer in the form of a shell script New GDM theme Supports the newest version of GNOME and Xfce New Mozilla themes specifically built for Mac4Lin Adium style AWN status icons for Pidgin Mac style scrollbars, menus Other tweaks in GTK theme Adium sounds for Pidgin New usplash Keeping up the tradition I'm including the download stats. SF.net alone has served about 10.4TB as on today! I'm also happy to announce that Mac4Lin was one of the winners of FOSS Awards 2008. Instructions: Download the Mac4Lin_v1.0_RC.tar.gz archive to any folder. Extract the archive and run Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0_RC.sh file. For any suggestions/comments/complaints/feedback/bug tracking please drop by my blog or send a mail: My Blog: http://phoenix-ani.blogspot.com/ My E-Mail id: infra_red_dude<A.T>users<D.O.T>sourceforge<D.O.T>net Project Website: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac4lin
  13. Sure.. just spread the word around. I'm looking for KDE themers who'd help me port Mac4Lin to KDE.
  14. I've invited folks to help me with KDE (as I'm not a KDE guy) but as yet nobody bothered to even mail me back! Anyone?
